BOSSIER PARISH, La. (KSLA) A jury found a Bossier City businessman guilty of two child pornography charges — and acquitted him on five others.

A jury found Daniel Hedrick guilty of possessing child pornography and attempted possession of child pornography.

His sentencing will be held on August 28. He faces a total of 30 years in prison — 20 years for the possession charge and 10 for the attempt to possess child pornography.

The judge will have an option to run both those sentences back to back.

The jury acquitted Hedrick on the following charges:

  • First-degree rape
