COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - A former Nebraska jail employee has been found guilty in western Iowa of child sex and pornography counts.

The Council Bluffs Daily Nonpareil reports (https://bit.ly/2esHNvM ) that a Pottawattamie County jury found Shawn Beu guilty Friday on all 10 counts related his sexual abuse and video recording of young girls.

Prosecutors say videos of Beu sexually abusing a young girl and of young girls taken on a hidden camera in Beu’s bathroom were found in his home. The 37-year-old Beu had claimed he did not take the videos.

Beu, who lives in Council Bluffs, was a corrections sergeant at the Douglas County Jail in Omaha when he was arrested in March. He faces up to 100 years in prison when he’s sentenced Nov. 30.
