Child rapist sentenced to 50 years in prison
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A 38-year-old man has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for the rape and sexual abuse of a child.
The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office says Anthony Mariscal was sentenced Friday after a jury in April found Mariscal guilty on over three dozen counts of rape, sexual abuse and sodomy.
The district attorney’s office says Mariscal committed the crimes against the child over a decade starting when the child was between 3 and 5 years old.
An investigation began in May 2017 when prosecutors say a woman walked in on him in his Portland house while he was raping the child and called police.
DNA evidence supported the rape allegations.
The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Deputy District Attorney Amber Kinney said Mariscal has denied any wrongdoing and showed “no remorse.”
In court Mariscal said he had nothing to say.
