Third degree sexual abuse of a minor is a felony punishable by imprisonment of up to 15 years.

Immoral or indecent acts is a felony punishable by imprisonment of up to 10 years, and a maximum fine of $1,000.

Court documents indicate that following a sexual abuse of a minor report made to the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) in April of 2022, an ensuing investigation led to the discovery of two more victims reported to have been assaulted by Detimore during the years mentioned above.

The incidents involving the two subsequent victims who came forward were reported to law enforcement in the years prior, but no charges were ever made.
