OMAHA, Neb. -- A federal jury in Omaha has convicted a former acting director of cyber security at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services of several child pornography counts.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for Nebraska says 56-year-old Timothy DeFoggi, of Germantown, Maryland, is the sixth person to be convicted as part of the investigation targeting three child pornography websites -- including one based and administered from Nebraska.

DeFoggi was convicted Tuesday of engaging in a child exploitation enterprise, conspiracy to advertise and distribute child pornography and accessing a computer with intent to view child pornography. He faces up to life in prison when he's sentenced Nov. 7.

An attorney for DeFoggi, John Berry, says he likely will appeal.
