The Honorable Kenneth Brody sentenced Edgar Orozco to 45 years in prison after Orozco pled to five counts of child molest by force or duress.
Orozco was a family acquaintance of the then 9-year-old victim. Between 2018 and 2020, the victim stayed at Orozco’s home on multiple occasions. During the visits, Orozco forced the victim to smoke marijuana and drink alcohol. He also threatened to hurt the victim’s family member and threatened to not let her eat if she did not comply with his commands. Once the victim was intoxicated, Orozco sexually assaulted her. Orozco sexually assaulted the victim in multiple ways, dozens of times before the victim was 10 years old.
