Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis
announced a 50-year prison sentence for Milvio Salguero-Gonzalez
, 44, of Plano, Texas, for the Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child Under Six. “The perpetrator’s threats were no match for this child’s bravery in reporting his abuse and also testifying against him,” Willis stated after sentencing.
Salguero-Gonzalez had access to the child through a relationship with the child’s family. He sexually abused the child when the child was around four years old. Salguero-Gonzalez told the child that something bad would happen to her parents if she told anyone about the abuse.
Years later, after a safety program at school, the child told her school counselor, who reported the abuse to Child Protective Services.
Plano Police Department Detective Chris Jones
investigated the case. The child was forensically interviewed at the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County
, where the child disclosed details about the abuse.
Judge Rayburn Nall presided over the case. The jury found Salguero-Gonzalez guilty of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child Under Six and assessed punishment at 50 years in prison. By law, a sentence for Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child Under Six is without eligibility for parole.
Assistant Criminal District Attorneys Courtney Sines and Carrie Thomas prosecuted the case, assisted by District Attorney Investigator Gregory Bowers, Victim Assistance Coordinators Casey Hendrix and Rebecca Royer, and Legal Secretary Christy Ware.
