Baudin went to the Bloomingdale Public Library on the morning of April 18, 2013, prosecutors said. A library employee noticed what appeared to be child porn on the computer terminal Baudin was using, and library officials contacted police.

An investigation revealed Baudin possessed more than 270 computer disks and more than 100 VHS tapes containing child pornography, prosecutors said.
