HARRISON CO., Ind. (WHAS11) – A jury has been deliberating since 1:45 p.m. in the case of a man, Raymond Hunt, accused of breaking into a home and holding the family at gunpoint.

The jury reached a verdict on Thursday night, on the seven counts Hunt was charged with.

The jury found Hunt guilty on six of the seven charges, including burglary, residential entry, criminal recklessness, pointing a firearm, operating a vehicle while intoxicated and criminal trespass.

The jury returned a not guilty verdict for the criminal confinement with a firearm charge against Hunt.

It all stems from the early morning hours of October 12, 2012, when Hunt drunkenly turned up at a random Harrison County home and pulled a gun on the residents and their two grandkids.

Both the defendant and victims say they'd never seen each other before and have no idea why Hunt did it. Hunt, whose blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit, says he blacked out and remembers very little of what happened. And claims he never intended to hurt anyone.

Hunt will be in court on Dec. 13, 2012 at 10 a.m. for sentencing, facing 31 years in prison for those six convictions.
