Joplin man: I have sexually abused so many children, I can't put a number on it
Jack Daggett, 29, is being held without bond after admitting to investigators "he had sexually abused so many children, he could not put a number on it."
According to the probable cause statement, Daggett said he viewed child pornography to keep himself from abusing more children. Though he said had been looking at child porn for quite some time, the indictment is for the period between February 17 and March 28. The pornography involved children as young as toddlers.
Daggett said he had spent much of his youth in group homes after being caught raping "a much younger child," according to the probable cause statement.
U. S. District Court records indicate Daggett was initially arrested in April.
