Grunewald Pleads No Contest

A Beaver Dam man entered a “no contest” plea Monday to a felony count of Possession of Child Pornography. 24-year-old Joshua Grunewald was originally charged with eleven counts after he was found in possession nearly 100 movies and 15 pictures depicting acts between adults and children. According to the criminal complaint, Grunewald admitted to viewing the materials, most were young teens and preteens but some of featured boys as young three. The items were accessed on a roommate’s computer. The felony charge carries a maximum 25 years in prison. A pre-sentencing investigation was ordered and Grunewald will be back for a hearing in October.
