West Concord man gets 70 months in prison

November 10, 2018

A West Concord man was sentenced Wednesday to 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to a felony charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Ruben Roldan Macias, 38, was sentenced to 144 months in prison by Dodge County District Court Judge Jodi Williamson. He pleaded guilty in May to a charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct-penetration. Macias appears in court documents as both Ruben Roldan Macias and Ruben Macias Roldan.

In an Olmsted County case, Macias was sentenced by Williamson to 70 months in state prison. He had pleaded guilty in May to a felony charge of second-degree criminal sexual conduct. A charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct-penetration was dismissed.

The prison sentences are concurrent with one another. Macias will receive 335 days credit for time already served. Following his prison sentence, he will be on a conditional release for 99 years, according to court records.

Both cases were a result of a four-month investigation that included the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office, Minnesota Prairie County Alliance, the Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office, the Rochester Police Department and Olmsted County Social Services, according to court documents.

The incidents occurred between 2014 and 2017, during which time a first victim said Macias touched the victim’s genital and breast areas; the child told authorities that the abuse also included anal penetration, according to court documents.

The victim told law enforcement that if the victim refused to do a sexual act, or didn’t “perform it correctly,” Macias would take away the victim’s things.

A second victim told police that they witnessed Macias sexually touching the first victim, according to court documents.

The second victim told law enforcement that Macias touched the victim at over the victim’s clothing, and tried to touch the victim’s genital area, and on at least one occasion, digitally penetrated the victim.
