On February 11, 2019, Angel Miguel Garza was sentenced to 128 years, 4 months plus 50 to Life for multiple convictions of forcible child rape and molestation.
On January 12, 2018, a jury found Garza guilty of 14 felony counts, consisting of forcible child rape, molestation, as well as witness intimidation, assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury, and kidnapping. Garza also had a prior strike offense, increasing the amount of prison time he would be facing. Back in January, the jury found Garza guilty of all charges presented after a four day trial which was presided over by the Honorable M. Reinhart.
