PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The child pornography trial of a former Maine prosecutor has wrapped up in federal court.

The trial of 48-year-old James Cameron ended Monday in U.S. District Court in Portland. Cameron, Maine’s former top drug prosecutor, did not take the stand in his own defense.

Cameron waived his right to a jury, leaving his fate in the hands of District Judge John Woodcock Jr. The Portland Press Herald says Woodcock has not indicated how long it will take to return a verdict.

Federal prosecutors said Cameron created 17 different user profiles and left a trail of child porn on file servers and on his home computers.

Cameron’s attorney said the government failed to prove that it was Cameron who sent, received or possessed any illegal photographs or videos.
