SPRINGFIELD GARDENS — A court officer assigned to the Civil Supreme Court in Jamaica was convicted of sexually abusing two young family members and possessing child pornography, the Queens district attorney said.

A jury found Kerbert Dixon, 50, guilty Wednesday on charges of sexual abuse, endangering a child and 484 counts of possessing child pornography, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.

According to trial testimony, Dixon sexually abused a 14-year-old female relative in June 2008 and on multiple occasions, between September 2008 and December 2009, touched a 10-year-old female family member in a sexual manner, Brown said.

Authorities also found hundreds of illegal images and videos on Dixon’s computer, Brown said.

Dixon faces up to 25 years in prison on the sexual conduct charges at sentencing, which is scheduled for April 9.
