Ninth Judicial District Attorney, Matthew Chandler, announced that Marc Anthony Davila, age 24, of Clovis, New Mexico, was sentenced to 18 years in prison after pleading guilty to criminal sexual penetration of a child under the age of 13.

In February of 2012, the child's mother reported to the Clovis Police Department that her child was sexually abused by Davila. An investigation started and it was learned that Davila had sexually abused the child throughout the summer of 2011. Davila was later arrested on May 8, 2012, and has remained in custody ever since.

On September 23, 2013, District Judge Fred Van Soelen, sentenced Davila to 18 years in prison for the charge of First Degree Criminal Sexual Penetration of a Child under the age of 13. The charge is a serious violent offense which requires 85% of the 18 years be served in prison. Upon release, Davila will be required to register as a lifetime sex offender and must serve 5 to 20 years of intensely supervised probation with the Adult Probation and Parole Division of the New Mexico Department of Corrections.

Assistant District Attorney Laura Sammons prosecuted the case for the State and Public Defender, Shonn Galassini, represented the defendant.
