DENTON (1080 KRLD) - A Denton County jury will begin deliberations today in the punishment phase of the trial of 35-year-old Ivan Early Holbert after finding him  guilty on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Police say Holbert pointed a weapon at another car on the road about a year and a half ago.

When police pulled over Holbert, they found a loaded gun and illegal drugs in his SUV. He also had two kids in the car. One of them was three years old while the other was ten months old.

The jury also found Holbert guilty of possession of a controlled substance.

The jury is set to begin the punishment phase of the trial today. Prosecutors will be allowed to president evidence of Holbert's previous criminal history, which includes a charge of failing to register as a sex offender.
