Denver (AP) Jurors are expected to continue deliberations today in the trial of a government official accused of using restricted criminal information for a campaign ad.

Cory Voorhis is an immigration and customs enforcement agent facing federal charges of exceeding authorized access to government computers. Prosecutors allege Voorhis obtained information from a database about plea deals Gov. Bill Ritter made with illegal
immigrants when he was district attorney.

Prosecutors say the Beauprez campaign later ran an attack ad against Ritter with the information. Voorhis faces up to three years in prison if convicted.

Voorhis' attorneys say he was exercising his first amendment right.

Jurors received their instructions yesterday before beginning deliberations.
