Dakota County Deputy will appear in court March 8

A 35-year Dakota County jail deputy, charged in Scott County with criminal sexual conduct in the first degree and with criminal sexual conduct in the second degree, remains lodged in the Scott County Jail in Shakopee.

Raul Rubio Mascorro is employed as a jail deputy at the Dakota County Jail in Hastings.  He has been accused of molesting two minor children. He is scheduled to appear in Scott County District Court at 8:30 a.m. Thursday, March 8, for an omnibus hearing. Mascorro is not a licensed peace officer.

According to the criminal complaint, two minor students notified Shakopee school officials, who then notified police, about being sexually abused by Mascorro.

Mascorro is in the Army and was temporarily stationed at Camp Atterbury in Edinburgh, Ind.

According to the complaint, Mascorro was admitted to a hospital, claiming to be suicidal. At that time, he apparently admitted to both hospital and military staff that he had abused the two juvenile females.
