WEST PALM BEACH — A Spanish-language actor from a popular Univision show has been sentenced to 10 years in prison on child pornography charges.

Adonis Losada had faced a possible 50-year prison sentence after being convicted in February of 66 child pornography charges. On Friday, Palm Beach County Circuit Court Circuit Court Judge Karen Miller threw out all but four charges.

Assistant State Attorney Gregory Schiller told The Palm Beach Post (http://bit.ly/1iefUgT ) that he may appeal Miller's decision to toss 62 charges.

Losada still faces child pornography charges in Miami-Dade County. He's been jailed since 2009. He has represented himself since firing his attorney before trial. On Friday, he repeatedly told Miller that he understood his constitutional rights.

Losada was a frequent guest on "Sabado Gigante," playing a grandmother character named Dona Concha.
