The Honorable Judge Russell Wilson sentenced Marcus Idrogo to 35 years in prison on two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and ordered those sentences to run consecutively. This means Idrogo was sentenced to 70 years.
Marcus Idrogo’s victim, who was 11 years old at the time he repeatedly raped her, finally saw justice. Our victim endured recounting the horrific details of her abuse by testi...fying in a jury trial last summer. The jury also heard evidence of a sexually transmitted disease, and DNA. Despite this evidence, a Wilson County jury was unable to reach a verdict. To avoid traumatizing our victim with a second trial, Idrogo was placed on 10 years probation. While on probation, Idrogo admitted to the sexual assault of his niece, and violated the conditions of his probation. The judge then revoked his probation and sentenced him.
We are grateful for the work of First Assistant District Attorney, Leslie Carranza, Investigator Richard Nichols, and Probation Officer Jamie Weida, for going above and beyond the call of duty. It was delayed, but justice was served.
