Registered sex offender accused of indecent behavior with pair of girls
BATON ROUGE - Deputies arrested a registered sex offender from Denham Springs based on accusations that he engaged in indecent behavior with two girls, aged 8 and 9.
63-year-old Darryl Grimmer was working as a plumber at the victims' home and went to repair a toilet on Mar. 18. The arrest warrant said Grimmer asked the two girls if they would like to ride with him to see the house their family would be moving into at the beginning of April.
The warrant goes on to report that one of the victims said Grimmer exposed himself to them and inappropriately touched her while they were in his van. The second victim told authorities the man showed them "nasty videos" on an iPad as he masturbated. The victims did not reveal the incident to their family, but one of the girls eventually came forward to a school teacher.
Detectives learned Grimmer's identity after a visit with the girls' mother at their home. The 8-year-old was able to identify Grimmer in a photographic lineup as the man who had exposed himself to her in the van.
After Grimmer was identified, it was also learned that the man had prior convictions for indecent behavior with juveniles in Dec. 2000 and again for obscenity in Aug. 2008. As a previous sex offender, the man is currently listed as non-compliant with failed to register status on the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office website.
Grimmer was taken into custody and charged with sexual battery and two counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile. He remains in East Baton Rouge Parish Prison, held on $80,000 bond.
