Criminal Sexual Conduct with Minors Lands Shakopee Man in Prison

Written By: Glenn Bruder | Published On: 21st December 2012

A Shakopee man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for criminal sexual conduct with two teenage girls.

At the time the girls reported the sexual abuse, they were 13 and 15 years old. They both reported the abuse to their school guidance counselor and the Shakopee police where they stated that they were abused over a period that lasted no less than two years.

The man, 36-year-old Raul Rubio Mascorro, 36, was convicted on November 16 of second-degree criminal sexual conduct, which is for the multiple acts that he committed with his two underage victims. He was also convicted with first-degree criminal sexual conduct for penetration with a victim under age 13. Both of these are felonies.

Mascorro will serve his sentence at the St. Cloud Minnesota Correctional facility. In addition to the 12 years that he will serve, he will be on conditional release for the rest of his life once he is allowed to reenter society. He will have to register as a predatory offender, pay restitution, and will provide a DNA sample. As a part of his sentencing, he received 133 days credit for the time he already served.

Initially, Mascorro’s sentence consisted of five felony charges, but he agreed to plead guilty to two charges in exchange for having the other three charges dismissed. The initial charges were one charge of pornography possession, two charges of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, and two charges of second-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Mascorro’s arrest came in 2011 when he was in Indiana in the midst of preparations to deploy to Afghanistan. In addition to serving in the military, Mascorro was a Dakota County jailer and even won an award in 2008 for innovations that he had made in his work as a corrections officer. He also had his name etched into a wall of fame due to his physical fitness test performances.

Mascoro’s previous convictions, according to Minnesota court records, consist of speeding in 2003 and window tint in 2005.
