LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com)  —  A 49-year-old Glendora man was sentenced to more than 13 years in prison Wednesday, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said.

Kirk Brian Eggleston was found guilty by a jury Oct. 20 of two felony counts: possession of child pornography after a prior conviction and attempted child pornography after a prior conviction.

Eggleston also admitted allegations that he was previously convicted of lewd and lascivious acts with child under 14 in 2003, child molestation in 2004 and indecent exposure in 2006.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Juan Carlos Dominguez on Wednesday also ordered Eggleston to register as a sex offender for life. Dominguez sentenced Eggleston to 13 years and four months in prison.

Deputy District Attorney Lauren Guber said that on Feb. 9, 2014, Eggleston went to the Glendora Public Library and began to view images of young girls in underwear and bathing suits on a library computer.

Library staff saw Eggleston looking at images of semi-nude young girls and called police, the prosecutor said. Authorities arrived and also viewed Eggleston looking at the inappropriate pictures.

Police officers testified during trial that they found search terms consistent with child pornography images when Eggleston was using the library computer.

Additionally, police inspected the defendant’s home computer and found child pornography search terms, but no pictures, the prosecutor said.
