DuPage Co. Sex Offender Sentenced on Child Porn Charge

Prosecutors said Scott Bauldin of Bloomingdale was caught looking at child pornography at a public library.

A 59-year-old registered sex offender in DuPage County has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for possessing images and videos containing child pornography. 

Scott Baudin, of Lakeview Drive in Bloomingdale, entered a blind plea of guilty to one count of Possession of Child Pornography, a Class 1 Felony, on Jan. 9 and was sentenced Monday in a DuPage County courtroom, according to a DuPage County State's Attorney's Office press release. 

Prosecutors said Baudin went to the Bloomingdale Public Library on April 18, 2013, and around 10:30 a.m., an employee of the library noticed what appeared to be child pornography on the computer terminal that Baudin was using. 

Officials at the library contacted the Bloomingdale Police Department who began an investigation into the matter, according to the news release. The investigation led authorities to Baudin where they found more than 270 computer disks and 100 VHS tapes containing child pornography. 

Baudin was arrested on July 24, 2013, at his home and charged with Possession of Child Pornography. He has remained in custody at the DuPage County Jail since his arrest on a $500,000 bail.

Baudin will be required to serve 50 percent of his sentence before being eligible for parole.
