FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, Ill. (KMOX) – 32-years in federal prison.

That’s the sentence for a Granite City, Illinois man who made child porn.

30-year-old Joseph Emil Klug pleaded guilty in September. 

Investigators say they found 59-thousand still images and 12-thousand videos of young boys engaged in sexually explicit behavior.  Prosecutors say Klug also admitted secretly recording boys from a special backpack while they were in bathrooms.  The U.S. Attorney’s Office says he would then share the images over the internet.
