Shakopee Man Facing Added Felony Criminal Sex Charges

Raul Mascorro is accused of additional charges of criminal sexual conduct and possessing child pornography.

A Shakopee man is now facing five felony charges in a case accusing him of sexual abuse against two girls under age 16 over a period of at least two years.

 on two charges of criminal sexual conduct while he was on a military base in Indiana preparing to deploy to Afghanistan with the U.S. Army. 

In late June, an amended criminal complaint was filed in Scott County with a total of five felony charges:

  • first-degree criminal sexual conduct – penetration with a victim under age 16, 
  • first-degree criminal sexual conduct – penetration, multiple acts over time with a victim under age 16, 
  • second-degree criminal sexual conduct, multiple acts over time with a victim under age 16, 
  • second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a victim under age 13, 
  • possession of pornography.

A 15-year-old girl reported multiple incidents to a school counselor in December and and a 13-year-old girl later reported incidents to Shakopee police. Both girls said the crimes occurred multiple times.

Mascorro's cell phone card was analyzed in March and a 28-second pornographic video involving a minor was found, according to the criminal complaint. The complaint further alleges that Mascorro is in the video, identified by his hand and a ring he is wearing.

Mascorro has worked as a jailer for Dakota County for several years and won an award in 2008 for innovation in his work as a correctional deputy, according to a department newsletter. During the first week of November, the department newsletter reported that Mascorro had his name etched on a wall of fame for performance in various physical fitness tests.

Mascorro has been previously convicted for speeding, and window tint, in 2003 and 2005, respectively, according to Minnesota court records.

A settlement conference in the case in is set for 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 16. He remains in Scott County Jail in lieu of $200,000 bond.
