Jarrad Vandergrift

A Callaway County man is sentenced to 135 years in prison for sex crimes against a minor.

Jarrad Vandergrift, 39, of New Bloomfield, was sentenced on Wednesday.  He was found guilty by a jury in February, of three counts of child molestation and three counts of statutory sodomy. 

The Callaway County Sheriff’s Office reports Vandergrift was arrested in 2019 after a 14-year-old girl reported the abuse to her school counselor.  The girl said the abuse had been ongoing, starting when she was four years old.
