School employee from Wolcott charged with promoting, possessing child sexual abuse materialLamoille

MONTPELIER – A 40-year-old man from Wolcott was recently arraigned on charges of promoting, and possessing child sexual abuse material.

Levi Gamble is facing one felony count of promoting a recording of sexual conduct and one misdemeanor count of possession of child sexual abuse material.

Police say the investigation was initiated when they were alerted by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that an individual possessed and promoted what was suspected to be a file containing child sexual abuse material, commonly referred to as “child pornography,” on the Discord platform.

Gamble was identified as the source of the suspected content on the identified Discord account.

Police say during the execution of a search warrant on Gamble’s home, numerous devices were recovered that will be forensically examined.

He is employed at an elementary school as a night custodian and the school district has been notified.

He pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in the Vermont Superior Court, Lamoille Criminal Division.

Superior Court Judge Scot Kline ordered an unsecured appearance bond in the amount of $5,000, in addition to conditions of release which restrict Gamble’s access to minors and devices capable of accessing the internet during the pendency of the case.
