Empowering Communities, Celebrating Minnesota Locally


A Judge took the resentencing of former New Ulm Police Investigator Eric Gramentz under advisement.  The Minnesota Court of Appeals reversed and sent back a Brown County District court sentencing decision last April.  Gramentz pleaded guilty in January 2023 to first-degree felony criminal sexual conduct and two counts of second-degree felony criminal sexual conduct.  An eight-year prison sentence was suspended if Gramentz followed probation terms of sex offender program completion, having no unsupervised contact with minors and registering as a predatory offender.  Gramentz was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 25 years supervised probation.  Scott County Prosecutors appealed that decision.  Monday, there was two hours of witness testimony and Judge Allison Krehbiel took the resentencing under advisement.
