Scroggins sentenced to probation for sexual exploitation of a minor

LEWISTON, ID - A Lewiston man charged with multiple sex crimes against children will not be going to prison.

In a plea agreement, 53-year-old Daniel Scroggins pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual exploitation of a child while eight other charges against him were dropped. Each charge carries a maximum of 10-years in prison; however the judge sentenced Scroggins to a two-to-ten-year suspended sentence and placed him on probation, which is what both the defense and prosecution recommended.

"You're to submit to polygraph tests at your own expense if you're requested to do so by your probation officer," said Nez Perce County Court Judge Kerrick. "You're not to associate with any person under the age of 18 years without another competent adult that's been previously approved. You're not to go to any city park, grade school, junior high or high school."

In addition to those requirements, Scroggins cannot use the internet and must register as a sex offender. Scroggins completed a psycho-sexual evaluation and was found to be a low risk to the community.
