Marcos Rivera – Repeat Sex Offender – Guilty

A Connecticut sex offender arrested last year after he was featured on TV crime show has been convicted of sexually assaulting another child.

Marcos Rivera, 30, of Hartford, pleaded guilty Monday to first-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor. A judge is expected to sentence him on Aug. 17 to 12 1/2 years in prison followed by 12 1/2 years of probation.

Prosecutors say Rivera repeatedly sexually assaulted his girlfriend’s daughter over a two-year span beginning when she was 5. Authorities say the girl didn’t reveal the assaults until she was older, after Rivera finished a 5-year prison sentence for sexually assaulting another minor.

Police arrested Rivera in the Bronx in August 2008, moments after “America’s Most Wanted” showed his case.
