DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine — A Sangerville man arrested last month on charges of possession of child pornography made his initial court appearance Monday in 13th District Court in Dover-Foxcroft.

Both Larry A. Daggett, 49, and his attorney Marvin Glazier of Bangor were in the courtroom when District Court Judge Kevin Stitham continued the case to June 22 for a status conference. Daggett entered no plea because the charge is a felony, and the case could be presented to the grand jury in June.

The affidavit filed by Maine State Police in connection with Daggett’s arrest was not released Monday.

Daggett was arrested last month at his Hudson Avenue home where his wife, Pam, operated Kreative Kids Daycare. His arrest came after police allegedly found sexually explicit materials depicting children under the age of 12 on his computer.

The Maine State Police Computer Crimes Unit was assisted in the arrest by the U.S. Secret Service and the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency. Daggett’s computer was seized as evidence.

Sgt. Glenn Lang of the computer crimes unit considered Daggett a “high risk” because of his wife’s day care center, although he said he had nothing to indicate the children enrolled in the day care were involved in Larry Daggett’s alleged activity.

Pam Daggett voluntarily suspended her day care operation the day of her husband’s arrest.
