Former New Ulm Police Investigator Sentenced For Child Sex Abuse
NewUlm, MN (KROC-AM News) - A former police investigator for a city in southern Minnesota has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for child sexual abuse.
A judge in Brown County has given 43-year-old Eric Gramentz a stayed prison sentence totaling more than 22 years that he could be ordered to serve if he does not meet the terms of his probation. The judge set the length of his probation at 25 years.
Gramentz entered guilty pleas in January to one count of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and two counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct. He was accused of sexually assaulting a child who was 11 or 12 years old at the time.
The sexual abuse occurred in 2017 but the charges were not brought against Gramentz until last April when the victim confided with another person about the abuse and that person confronted the veteran New Ulm police officer.
