Convictions in a number of Santa Clara County child sex-abuse cases may be in jeopardy.

According to the Mercury News, prosecutors have found thousands of videotapes from those cases that were never turned over to the defense as required by law.

One conviction has already been overturned and prosecutors are reviewing the tapes to determine how many other cases might be affected.
