Maine State Police raided two of Cutler’s homes last year after a search warrant was issued based off of a tip.

A computer crimes unit said it found thousands of videos of “very young children being sexually abused.”

A judge has allowed Cutler to access a laptop and cell phone, which are being monitored for sexually explicit materials.
