Iowa teen given no prison time after pleading guilty to sexual abuse of a baby

OTTUMWA, Iowa — An Iowa teenager 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 years old.

Police said he was arrested in 2014 when he posted pictures on a child pornography website of himself having sex with the toddler.  Officials said 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.
