GILMAN, Wis. (WAOW) -- Members of the small Gilman community said they're shocked by the news of former Gilman School District employee Daniel Peggs.

Peggs was arrested on Thursday morning and charged with sex trafficking of a minor.

"You never expect it in a town like this," one parent said. "Everybody knows everyone. Having something like this happen is just shocking and disturbing. What if it was one of my kids and I don't know about it."

A former student that News 9 spoke with said Daniel Peggs was someone who she thought she knew at the time.

"He was one of the best principals we had," the former student said. "Just kind of don't want to believe it you know. Especially for Mr. Peggs who we all have grown up to know to love."

Peggs is expected in federal court on Monday.
