A 36-year-old Oakdale man has been convicted of repeatedly molesting a 9-year-old girl over a three-month period, the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office announced this week.
Michael Garrin Mack on Feb. 24 pleaded no contest to committing lewd acts upon a child younger than 14, oral copulation of a child younger than 14 and child cruelty likely to cause great bodily injury.
Upon entering his plea, Superior Court Judge Dawna Reeves sentenced Mack to the aggravated term of eight years and eight months in prison.
Deputy District Attorney Beth O’Hara Owen prosecuted the case. Prosecutors said the sexual abuse occurred from Feb. 1 through and May 1, 2011.
The victim’s mother was asked if she wanted to make a victim impact statement in court shortly before Mack was sentenced. Owen said the mother told her “He’s not worth my time.”
