Rymer was tried before a jury in a trial beginning on February 3 and continuing on through February 7. The jury convicted Rymer of touching the 12 year old victim’s vagina with the intent to arouse his own sexual desires.
Wednesday’s sentencing followed a pre-sentence investigation conducted by State Probation at the request of Superior Court Judge David Blevins.
This case was investigated by Detective Brett Morrison of the Murray County Sheriff’s Department who also testified at trial.
The State’s evidence was presented by Assistant District Attorney Benjamin Kenemer.
When Rymer is released from prison, as a condition of the probated portion of his sentence, he will be prohibited from having contact with the victim, will be required to comply with other sex offender conditions as are typically ordered in child molestation cases and will be required to register as a sex offender.
