Macon – A 40-year-old Macon man was sentenced to prison Tuesday after he pleaded guilty to molesting a then-15-year-old girl in 2018.
Andres Marcos pleaded guilty to two counts of child molestation and one count of another sex-related crime pursuant to a plea agreement. A Bibb County Superior Court judge sentenced him to serve 40 years. He must serve the first 25 years in prison. Marcos is not a United States citizen and could face deportation upon his release.
If the case had gone to trial, prosecutor Shelley Milton would have presented evidence showing Marcos engaged in sex acts with the girl between April 21, 2018, and April 27, 2018. A concerned member of the girl’s family set up a hidden camera which recorded sex acts involving Marcos and the girl. The recording was later turned over to authorities as part of a law enforcement investigation.
Speaking after the hearing, District Attorney David Cooke said, “Mr. Marcos broke a sacred bond as a trusted adult when he exploited this child. I’m grateful that we could get this girl justice and the comfort of knowing he’ll be locked away for decades to come.”
