    Convicted and Sentenced to 30 years Florida State Prison:

    James Daggett
    DOB: 09/18/1953
    3610 West Pearl Avenue
    Tampa, Florida


    On October 21, 2013, Hillsborough Circuit Court Judge Chet A. Tharpe gave James Daggett 30 years in Florida State Prison for 150 counts of possession of child pornography. Daggett was found guilty in a September 2013 jury trail.

    On February 28, 2013 detectives with the HCSO Internet Predator Unit conducted a search warrant for child pornography at Daggett's residence located at 3610 Pearl Avenue in Tampa.

    During the search warrant, detectives located a generic desktop computer in a room that appeared to be used as an office. A forensic exam of the computer revealed approximately 1600 images and videos of children ages 3 to 13 years old engaged in sexual activity or posed in lewd positions.

    Daggett was booked into the Orient Road Jail where he was held until his September 2013 conviction in court.
