Child Predator Gets 60 Years in Prison Without Parole from Collin County Jury
Luis Escobedo, 32, of Plano, Texas, was sentenced to 60 years in prison without parole after a jury found him guilty of Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child. “The jury’s verdict says it is completely unacceptable to prey on children. And if you do, then you’ll spend the rest of your life in prison, unable to harm another child,” stated DA Willis after sentencing.
Escobedo was an adult who was known by and had ongoing access to three children who ultimately disclosed their abuse to trusted adults. Escobedo sexually abused all three children over the course of 12 years, starting when the children were as young as five years old. Eventually, one of the children disclosed the abuse to another family member, which led to a family meeting where the two other children also disclosed their abuse. The abuse was reported to the Richardson Police Department and CPS.
Richardson Police Department Detective Sarah Yee investigated the case and interviewed the two oldest children. The youngest child was forensically interviewed at the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center. During their interviews, all three children disclosed details about their abuse.
The jury found Escobedo guilty of Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child. The Court assessed punishment at 60 years in prison. By law, a sentence for Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child is without eligibility for parole.
