A Texas man, Edward Leclair, died Thursday a few minutes after being convicted of child sexual abuse

A Texas man died Thursday a few minutes after being convicted of child sexual abuse. The man, Edward Leclair, 57, was seen drinking a bottle of liquid before the health situation occurred, according to CNN.

"As these verdicts were being read, he chugged a bottle of water he had at counsel table," Denton County Assistant District Attorney Jamie Beck told CNN Friday. "He was literally throwing it back."

He was facing five counts of child sexual abuse relating to the same victim, and was out on bond until the verdict.

"Our investigator noticed him chug the water," Beck said, noting that it appeared cloudy. "He told the bailiff he might want to go check on him. The bailiff did. He was unconscious in the holding cell."

"Shortly after entering the holdover cell, he started vomiting, and emergency services were called," Leclair's defense attorney, Mike Howard, told CNN Friday.

The defense attorney said Edward took a "long drink from a water bottle" while listening to the verdict, but he didn’t not know what was in the bottle.

Edward was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

An autopsy has been scheduled, and the cause of death is listed as pending.

What a coward.
