(The AEGIS Alliance) – An age 35 Colorado man in Arapahoe County was handed down a life prison sentence for sexually assaulting 3 kids throughout a four-year time frame.
On March 22, an Arapahoe County Judge sentenced Brian Eugene Barcelona to 200-years behind bars after he was found guilty on 12 counts of sexual assault against a child by a person in a position of trust as well as 4 counts of sex-related exploitation of a kid, according to an announcement by the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office.
In 2018, a dad said to the Aurora Police that Barcelona was sexually attacking his young boy that’s the child’s cousin. The District Attorney’s Office indicated that detectives figured out Barcelona “repeatedly sexually assaulted” the kid and also his pair of siblings that were in between 10 and 13 years old back then that occurred between 2015 to 2018. Detectives additionally discovered incriminating images on Barcelona’s smartphone of the sex abuse.
Barcelona gave a not guilty plea in October and the case went to trial.
Senior Deputy District Attorney Danielle Jaramillo pointed out in the announcement that “In all my years of prosecuting these types of cases, I struggle to recall another one involving such severe abuse or brazen conduct. The defendant felt so secure in his ability to exploit his position of trust to silence these children that he actually kept photographs as trophies.”
