Guilty verdicts returned Monday in the trial of a 38-year-old man charged with four counts of sexual indecency with a child were met with hugs and tears of relief by victims and their family members.

A Brazos County jury deliberated for about five hours on day five of a trial of a Houston man whose nephews testified they were coaxed into having inappropriate sexual relations with him during separate instances over an eight-year period.

The man faces a maximum of 80 years in prison, with each count being punishable by up to 20 years and a $10,000 fine.

He moved to Houston in 2008 -- the same year the charges were filed after both nephews had come forward.
