LEAVENWORTH, Kansas (AP) – A northeast Kansas man who was discovered by a child to be hiding under a bed will be sentenced next month for criminal trespass and other charges.

A jury took about an hour this week to convict 35-year-old Earl Brockington Jr.

Authorities said Brockington entered the Leavenworth home of the mother of his children on April 21 and hid under a bed for several hours while spying on the family.

The mother testified during the one-day trial that she thought her son was imagining things when he told her someone was under the bed. The two adults struggled before the woman and children got out of the house.

Brockington will be sentenced Sept. 24 for charges that also include robbery, domestic battery and witness intimidation.
