A Westbrook man was convicted of possession of child pornography on Tuesday after a two-day jury trial in U.S. District Court in Portland.

Joel Dudley, 29, told agents from Homeland Security Investigations when they raided his apartment at 80 Mechanic St. in Westbrook, on Aug. 20, 2012, that he had downloaded hundreds of pornographic videos of children from the Internet, according to court records.

Dudley faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

He is scheduled to be sentenced before Judge George Singal on May 30.
