Charles A. Graner, Jr., (born 1968) is a former U.S. Army reservist who was convicted of prisoner abuse in connection with the 2003–2004 Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse scandal. Graner, with other soldiers from his unit, the 372nd Military Police Company, was accused of allowing and inflicting sexual, physical, and psychological abuse of Iraqi prisoners of war in Abu Ghraib, a notorious prison in Baghdad during the United States' occupation of Iraq. He was also convicted of conspiracy to maltreat detainees, failing to protect detainees from abuse, cruelty, and maltreatment, as well as charges of assault, indecency, and dereliction of duty. He was found guilty of all charges on January 14, 2005, and sentenced to 10 years in prison, demotion to private, dishonorable discharge and forfeiture of pay and allowances. Charges of adultery and obstruction of justice were dropped before trial. On August 6, 2011, Graner was released from the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas after serving six and one half years of his 10 year sentence.

Graner held the rank of Specialist in the company during his tour of duty in Iraq. While in Iraq, Specialist Lynndie England, also implicated in the prisoner scandal, became pregnant, allegedly by him.

Graner went to Baldwin High School in Baldwin, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Pittsburgh. He was a member of the Student Council, Student Council Executive Board, Drama Club and Math League.
