Grumelot stands with his attorney, Billy Garrett, during a preliminary hearing.

The trial for former Greenwood County fire coordinator Corey Grumelot is set to get underway at the Greenwood County Courthouse on Monday morning.

Grumelot is facing charges of criminal sexual conduct and misconduct in office following a SLED investigation into an incident in which he allegedly picked up a woman walking down the road, gave her some prescription medication and had sex with her at a local hotel while on duty in Jan. 2011.

The woman was allegedly already under the influence of some prescription medication before meeting Grumelot. According to a GCSO incident report, the alleged victim had to be taken to Self Regional Medical Center for treatment. The report states that the alleged victim told police that she told Grumelot “no,” but he ignored her. The alleged victim told investigators that she remembers falling down some steps and then waking up at the hospital and being told she had been placed on a ventilator.

Grumelot resigned about a week after the incident amidst allegations of the sexual misconduct. GCSO investigators immediately referred the case to SLED for investigation due to Grumelot being a county employee. Grumelot reportedly told investigators that he had sex with the alleged victim and thought she needed medical treatment when he was having sex with her.

During Grumelot’s bond hearing, his attorney, Billy Garrett, told the Magistrate that Grumelot was pleading not guilty to the charges.

“Mr. Grumelot is a well-known person in Greenwood,” Garrett said during the bond hearing. “He’s been fully cooperative with law enforcement in this matter. He has answered their questions. He has appeared here today upon their request. He’s pleading not guilty to these charges. He wants his day in court.”

Assistant Attorneys General Josh Underwood and Kelly Hall will be handling the case for the state. The case was briefly assigned to 8th Circuit Solicitor David Stumbo when he was at the Attorney General’s office after it was referred to the Attorney General from then-8th Circuit Solicitor Jerry Peace due to Grumelot’s position with the county.
