Mariel Alexandra Grimm was convicted of first degree assault of a 13 month old toddler in July 2017. The child suffered a subdural hemorrhage that the child abuse pediatrician determined was associated with a violent acceleration-deceleration event, such as would happen in a high-speed car crash or the shaking or throwing of a baby. The boy survived his injuries, but suffered severe and permanent brain damage.
I was attending my probation violation hearing at the same courthouse on the day Grimm was sentenced by Judge David Knutson. He sentenced Grimm to 90 days in jail and 15 years probation as he determined she had a clean record, cooperated with court processes and was unlikely to reoffend.
Grimm was also given 60 days of electronic home monitoring and must perform 30 days on Sentencing to Service crews and 200 hours of community work service, as well as pay a $1,000 fine and restitution. Grimm could have received a prison sentence of up to 20 years.

Grimm has maintained her innocence. Despite her assertions, a court found her guilty of assaulting a toddler. Grimm was caring for the 13-month-old boy last September when she says he suddenly had some kind of seizure after waking up from a nap.
