MONROE, La. (AP) - It took a Monroe jury only 18 minutes to convict a man of possession of child porn.

The News-Star reports (https://tnsne.ws/1qNSjbV ) an eight-man, four-woman jury found 34-year-old Benjamin Hixon, of Monroe, guilty Thursday in a unanimous verdict.

Hixon was arrested as part of an undercover operation in July 2009.

An arrest affidavit states police conducted the operation to find people suspected of possessing, manufacturing or distributing child pornography.

Sentencing is scheduled for Oct 22.
