Sentencing delayed for former teacher

The sentencing of former South Lake Tahoe teacher Karsten Gronwold on federal child pornography charges has been delayed until Dec. 3, according to a spokeswoman for the U.S. District Attorney’s Office in Sacramento.

In August, Gronwold pleaded guilty to possessing images of young boys engaged in sexual conduct, and a sentence was expected to be handed down Oct. 29.

A reason for the delay was not immediately available, according to Mary Wenger, spokeswoman for the attorney’s office.

Gronwold and the prosecution have agreed to a sentence of just more than eight years, although the actual length is at the discretion of the court.

At the conclusion of the federal case, Gronwold will face one count of lewd and lascivious conduct with a minor under the age of 14 that is being brought by the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office.
