Twenty-five year-old Daniel Julian Gragg was arrested on July 28, 2017 and charged with felony stalking, harassment, and sexual exploitation of a minor. According to an affidavit from the Keokuk County Sheriff’s Office, deputies investigated incidences of vandalism at the residence of the minor and threatening Facebook messages sent to her from different accounts that were traced back to Gragg. A search warrant was executed at Gragg’s residence, and nude photographs of the minor were found on his phone. On June 1st Gragg pled guilty to the charges of stalking and harassment. Court records show the plea agreement he entered will have deferred judgment in respect to the stalking count, three years of probation to the Department of Correctional Services, and a civil penalty of $750. The state also agrees to stipulate that the offense was not sexually motivated. A sentencing hearing is scheduled on July 20th at 10:30 a.m. at the Keokuk County Courthouse.
