Prison Sentence for Crimes Against a Child

Gilberto Antonio Mulgado, 35, was sentenced to 30 years in prison after being found guilty of Custodial Sexual Battery following a trial in Lee County in May. He was also designated a lifetime Sexual Predator.

The defendant committed acts of sexual battery upon a child for several years. The victim told a guidance counselor at her school about the abuse who then reported it to authorities. Mulgado was arrested in 2017 by the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.

Assistant State Attorneys Jessica Horowitz and Agnieszka Osowicka handled the case.
