San Luis Obispo County District Attorney

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif.– 57-year-old Anthony Grunow was found guilty on 11 counts of sexual abuse of three survivors under the age of 14 over a three-year period, according to the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney.

From August 2018 to August 2021, Grunow abused three children well known to him in the Heritage Ranch area of San Luis Obispo County.

“We admire the profound strength of the three young survivors in disclosing these terrible crimes and in describing to the jury what they endured at the hands of this sexual predator."

- SLO District Attorney Dan Dow

A jury found the 57-year-old guilty of one count of sexual intercourse with a child under the age of 10, ten counts of committing a lewd act on a child under the age of 14, and a special allegation of committed lewd acts on multiple victims under the age of 14. 

The man now faces a maximum sentence of 250 years to life in prison with a sentencing hearing set for Mar. 30.
