Former Police Detective Admits to Having Child Porn

FAYETTEVILLE, AR - A former Fayetteville police detective has pleaded guilty to a federal child pornography charge.  Jeremy Boyd Grammer, 31, changed his plea to guilty to one count of distributing child pornography through his home computer.  As part of the plea negotiations, two other counts were dropped.

The hearing initially was set for Tuesday but was delayed two days to allow Grammer to deal with a tattoo indicating he was a police officer.  Grammer asked the judge that he not be jailed while awaiting sentencing, but U.S. District Judge Jimm Hendren ordered Grammer jailed immediately.

Grammer is to be sentenced in 35 to 40 days after probation officers complete a presentencing report.  He faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.  He also will have to register as a sex offender.

Grammer served as a Fayetteville patrol officer and a K9 officer before becoming a detective.  He also was a member of the Emergency Response Team.
