PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Anthony Mariscal was sentenced to 50 years in prison for raping a child among numerous other sex crimes.
The 38-year-old was caught sexually abusing the victim by the victim’s mother in 2017. Portland police were called and the investigation began on May 23, 2017.
Once the police arrived, the victim was sent to OHSU and treated immediately.
Mariscal committed various sex crimes against the child over the course of a decade, beginning when she was just 3 years old.
“Anthony Mariscal sexually and emotionally abused the young victim for almost her entire childhood,” said Multnomah County Deputy District Attorney Amber Kinney, who prosecuted this case.
A jury unanimously found Mariscal guilty on a total of 38 counts in April 2019.
“The victim endured the abuse for a decade, beginning when she was approximately three years old and living on the east coast,” she said. “We are amazed by her strength and the incredible courage she showed by sharing her story with 12 strangers. She is a hero and has made our community a safer place for children.”
