Ex-choir teacher sentenced in child lewdness conviction
SALT LAKE CITY — A former Grantsville High School choir teacher convicted of committing a lewd act in front of a 12-year-old boy has been sentenced to 100 hours of community service and probation.
Salvatore Larenzo Degraffenreidt, 30, of Tooele, was charged Oct. 22 in 3rd District Court with lewdness involving a child, a class A misdemeanor. He pleaded guilty in December and was recently ordered to perform 100 hours of community service, and was placed on two years probation. The terms of his probation include not having any contact with the victim or his family, undergoing a psycho-sexual evaluation and complying with any recommendations made from it, according to court records.
Degraffenreidt was accused of engaging in lewd acts with another man in a steam room at the Sports Mall, 5445 S. 900 East, in the presence of a 12-year-old boy. The other man, 47, was also charged with lewdness involving a child and was convicted on an identical count as Degraffenreidt.
Degraffenreidt began teaching at Tooele High School in 2008 and then at Grantsville High School in 2010. He is no longer listed on Grantsville High School's website as being an employee.
