From: Lieutenant Krag Campbell
Case or Incident: #190808-003
Summary:

On 01/31/2020, at about 10:00 AM, the Juneau Police Department arrested 53-year-old Juneau resident, Keith Anders Hermann, on a $50,000 arrest warrant, related to multiple charges of sexual abuse of a minor. Hermann was arrested at the State office building where he works.

The warrant was issued for Hermann's arrest on 01/30/2020, after a Juneau grand jury indicted him on six counts of sexual abuse of a minor in the 1st degree, six counts of sexual abuse of a minor in the 2nd degree, and one count of sex assault in the 1st degree.

The initial investigation began on 08/08/2019, when the Juneau Police Department received a report alleging that Hermann had been sexually abusing a minor over a span of about fifteen years. Over the next several months, JPD Detectives investigated the case which ultimately was referred to the District Attorney's Office for prosecution and indicted by a grand jury.

Hermann is currently being held at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center on $50,000 bail.

 

All factual allegations contained in this release are based upon preliminary investigation and are subject to change or clarification as the investigation continues. Any charges reported in this release are merely accusations and all persons named in this release are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
