    APPLETON (WLUK) -- An Appleton man will serve a 20 year sentence after using the Appleton Public Library Wi-Fi to access child porn.

    It happened last February when 43-year-old Brian Kluck asked to use a private study room, according to a criminal complaint.

    An attentive library employee noticed Kluck's device was trying to access child porn, and informed an Appleton Police officer, Sgt. Vander Wielen.

    Wielen confronted Kluck in March.

    That's when Kluck admitted that he goes to the Appleton Public Library to use their Wi-Fi.

    He admitted to accessing, or trying to access, multiple websites while at the library, including a Russian website that Wielen knows to be associated with child pornography.

    The complaint says Kluck admitted that he saved multiple images and videos on his computer, and admitted that he was sexually aroused by children.

    Last March, when Appleton Police analyzed Kluck's computer, they found "numerous images and videos which constituted child pornography."

    In addition to the pictures and videos that were found on his computer, Kluck was accused of uploading videos to Google Drive.

    The complaint says officers also took Kluck's phone, and found several items in his web browser including 'preteen webcams", "junior nudists", "kids nude", and others.

    Kluck will spend 10 years behind bars, and another decade on extended supervision, totaling the 20 year sentence.
