Former Phelps school district custodian gets prison for viewing child porn

VILAS COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A former school custodian in far northern Wisconsin will spend three years in prison for looking at child porn on school computers.

62-year-old Richard Buell used to work in the Phelps School District.

He pleaded guilty in June to 2 felony counts of possessing child porn. Eight similar counts were dropped in a plea deal with Vilas County prosecutors.

Authorities said a school-issued laptop that monitors the district's ventilating systems was used to download child porn.

School officials told police about it in February of last year. After his prison term, Buell must spend 3 more years under extended supervision.
