A 48-year-old man accused of using a library computer to view inappropriate images of young girls was convicted yesterday, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced. 

A jury deliberated for an hour before finding Kirk Brian Eggleston (dob 11/9/65) of Glendora guilty of two felony counts: possession of child pornography after a prior conviction and attempted child pornography after a prior conviction in case KA106649. 

The felony information alleged that Eggleston was previously convicted of lewd and lascivious acts with child under 14 in 2003, child molestation in 2004 and indecent exposure in 2006. 

Eggleston is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 14, 2015, at the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Pomona Branch in Department H. He faces a maximum sentence of 13 years and four months in state prison. 

Deputy District Attorney Lauren Guber, who prosecuted the case, said on Feb. 9 Eggleston went to the Glendora Public Library, sat down at a computer and began to view images of young girls in underwear and bathing suits. 

Library staff noticed the defendant looking at images of seminude young girls and called police, the prosecutor said. Authorities arrived and also viewed Eggleston looking at the inappropriate pictures. 

Law enforcement began an investigation into Eggleston’s practices at the library and at home. They examined search terms Eggleston used while at the library computers and on his sister’s home computer and discovered hundreds of images of young girls.  

The case was investigated by the Glendora Police Department.
