Judge sentences 'serial sex offender' to 12 years

March 01, 2012
ELKHORN — Judge John Race said Michael T. Grant groomed teenage girls and described him as a "serial sex offender," during a March 2 sentencing hearing. Race sentenced Grant, 45, N4972 Town Hall Road, Delavan Township, to 12 years imprisonment. In November, a jury found him guilty of repeated sexual assault of a child. Grant, who also goes by Tim, has denied the sexual assaults and told a presentence investigator that he was only found guilty because the victims and witnesses lied and his lawyer let him down. Grant, who declined to speak during the sentencing hearing, was charged with two counts of sexual assault, but a jury found him not guilty of one of the counts. However, during the hearing Race said he believes the other girl also was sexually assaulted by Grant.
