AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- State Rep. Kino Flores, a South Texas lawmaker accused of using his elected position to sell legislative favors, was convicted Wednesday on all 11 counts of tampering with government records and perjury.

A Travis County jury convicted Flores, 52, of five counts of misdemeanor tampering with a governmental record, four counts of felony tampering with a governmental record and two counts of misdemeanor perjury in deliberations that began Tuesday. Flores did not testify.
