AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A former University of Texas women's trackequipment manager has been convicted of secretly videotaping a student-athlete as she dressed in a shower locker room.

The penalty phase is Thursday for 32-year-old Rene Zamora, who resigned in September 2010 after a complaint was filed by a track team member.

A jury in Austin on Wednesday convicted Zamora on six counts of improper photography or visual recording involving one woman. He faces up to two years behind bars on each state jail felony charge.

The Austin American-Statesman reports Zamora was charged with secretly taping at least 11 student-athletes over a three-year period.

No decision was immediately made on whether Zamora will face additional prosecution.
