TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – The Indiana Court of Appeals has denied an appeal for Hubert Kraemer.
A judge sentenced Kraemer to 12 years with the Indiana Department of Corrections, four of those would be on formal probation. Kraemker previously pleaded guilty to neglect of a dependent in connection to the death of nine-year-old Cameron Hoopingarner. Investigators said he weighed less than 15 pounds when he died in 20-17.
Kraemer argued his sentence was inappropriate for the crime and his character. A judge said he failed to make his case.
