Teen Rapes Baby, Films It - You Won't Believe His Sentencing

A teenager in Iowa who made a live streaming video of himself raping a two-year-old will not spend any more time in prison after pleading guilty to a reduced charge.

According to local media reports, Kraigen Grooms raped a 2-year-old girl in 2013, when he was 16, while a man in New Orleans watched and recorded the child abuse.

Law enforcement believes the rape was premeditated and that Grooms had also planned on assaulting a 3-year-old boy.

A Facebook group called MissingCases.com helped investigators identify Grooms as the assailant after sharing a photo of him, which resulted in numerous tips from those who knew Grooms.

“It’s sad, he is such a young kid,” noted Tim Caya. “Usually when you hear about this, it is old guys. It makes you wonder what was going on in his life to get him to this. I’m glad I helped catch him, but it makes you wonder about what is going on these days with kids doing this at such a young age.”

Grooms was initially arrested when he was 17 and charged with second-degree sexual abuse, a felony that could result in a 25-year prison term.

He ended up pleading guilty to a lesser charge of engaging in a lascivious act with a child.

However, Grooms will not spend any more time in prison for his crime, as Judge Randy Degeest recently gave him a 10-year suspended sentence.

Grooms was released from custody after the sentencing, after spending around two years in juvenile detention and a few months in the Wapello County Jail.
