Teen given no prison time after pleading guilty to sexual abuse of baby
OTTUMWA, Iowa — An Iowa teen who pleaded guilty in July to sexually abusing a 1-year-old girl will not serve any prison time.
KTVO reports the abuse happened when Kraigen Grooms, now 19, was 17. Police say he was arrested in 2014 when he posted pictures on a child pornography website of himself having sex with the toddler. Officials say there was also video evidence of the abuse.
Grooms received a 10-year suspended sentence and five years of supervised release but was given no jail time.
In addition to the sentence, he is required to register as a sex offender for the remainder of his life.
