DATE: May 20, 2021
CASE: Edward Marin (Case #20FE006546)
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Dinah Mielke, Special Assault & Child Abuse Unit
Edward Marin was convicted by a jury of 32 counts of child sexual assault charges. The jury also found true substantial sexual conduct and more than one victim allegations.
Marin sexually assaulted one victim from the time she was 8 years old until she was 14 years old. He assaulted a second victim from the time she was 11 years old until she was 17 years old. Marin committed a number of different sex assaults against the two victims over a span of many years, multiple times a week. When one of the victims was a junior in high school, she told a friend about the abuse. That friend ultimately wrote a note to the school social worker the following school year to report the victim was being abused. The social worker then reported the crimes to police.
Marin faces a maximum sentence of 59 years and 4 months in prison. Sentencing is set for July 2, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. in Department 22 before the Honorable Sharon Lueras.
