Rochester man receives probation sentence after sexually assaulting 9-year-old

(ABC 6 News) – An Olmsted County judge sentenced a Rochester man to 20 years of probation after the man pleaded guilty molesting a 9-year-old girl in March of 2020.

David John Vigil, 55, pleaded guilty to one count of 1st-degree criminal sexual conduct–penetration or conduct with person under 13 on Thursday, Feb. 16.

A second charge was dismissed.

His sentence of 13 years of prison in the St. Cloud correctional facility was “stayed” for 20 years, meaning Vigil will not have to serve any prison time as long as he follows the conditions of his probation.

Vigil was also sentenced to 365 days at the Olmsted County jail, with credit for 34 days served, which he may serve as work release if eligible, according to Minnesota court records.

He was also sentenced to 100 hours of community service, with credit for participating in pro-social activities.

Vigil’s plea agreement specified that if he pleaded guilty, he would receive probation, “based upon the Defendant’s particular amenability to treatment, advancing age, remorse, and compliance with conditions of release since charged in March of 2020.”
