Fritz Alfred Erhardt, 61, was found guilty on three charges of child molestation on March 26.

Erhardt, who had been accused of molesting a 14-year-old girl, then only 12 years old, was found guilty by a jury on all three charges, Erhardt’s attorney Erik Schlueter said. The felony charges against the avid volunteer for area historical organizations included two charges of committing a lewd act upon a child and a single charge of continuous sexual abuse. The charges cover a five-year span, from 2004 to 2009, according to the complaint filed against Erhardt in 2009.

According to deputy district attorney Jamie Verwayen, the charges carry up to a 20-year prison sentence, with sentencing to be decided by El Dorado County Superior Court Judge Daniel B. Proud.

He is currently in being held in custody at El Dorado County Jail.

Erhardt’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for June 8 at 1:30 p.m.

    12 people decided that Fritz Erhardt is guilty but that doesn't mean Erhardt is actually guilty of these charges.

    Please note some of us do NOT need to use false names to post/I am 100% truthful and have no fears of anyone knowing exactly who I am. I have known Fritz Erhardt and his family for decades....gone so far as to even vacation with them....the victim here is Fritz Erhardt. I 'get' how so many others who have wished to speak up for Fritz have failed to do so giving such excuses as being afraid for their jobs etc.....well I am not afraid to speak the truth. I am also not afraid of those who would challenge me with THEIR lies. I am heartbroken for this man and disgusted by the lack within our justice system. How many of you here even have the smallest inkling of a clue as to what 'evidence' the jury had? Any of you, ANYONE???? There is NO FACTUAL OR PROVEN EVIDENCE PERIOD. YES. THAT'S CORRECT! All it apparently takes in this day and age is the words of one child....the jury wrongfully convicted based on emotional response to a testimony that could not and can not be viewed as factual. A childs word....and for those super smarmy brainiacs who THINK a child would not lie about something so serious and vile well guess what....states as of 2010 report as many as 40% convicted child sex offenders who were convicted based on a childs testimony are in fact innocent>>>>FOURTY PERCENT! It can take as long as over a decade to get this straightened out.....someone WILL burn for this someday in some very hot place down below...but it will NOT be Fritz Erhardt.
