POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -  According to the Polk County District Attorneys Office, Joe Allen Lewis was on trial for two counts of possession. The jury found him guilty on one count but not the other.

Because of his prior felony convictions he will now face up to 20 years in prison instead of up to two years which is normal for this charge.

The Assistant DA congratulated the jury for taking a well known criminal off the streets.
