Shumski given 60 years for sexual assault of a child

On Thursday afternoon a Wise County jury handed Mark J. Shumski, 45, a sentence of 60 years in prison for sexual assault of a child. The victim in the case was under 14 years of age at the time of the assaults, which occurred over the course of three years, 2008 to 2011, at the defendant’s residence in Rhome. After two days of testimony, the jury deliberated for more than six hours before delivering a guilty verdict Wednesday evening. Shumski faced a sentence of 25 to 99 years or life without parole for the crime. Due to a law enacted by the state legislature in 2007, any time a defendant is convicted of sexual assault against a child younger than 14 years old, and the assault occurs more than once over a span longer than 30 days, the defendant most spend a minimum of 25 years in prison. No parole is allowed in such cases. The victim, which was Shumski’s former step-daughter, testified that Shumski entered her bedroom as much as two times per week and molested her again and again over three year period. The victim was between the age of 10 and 13 when the assaults occurred. During the punishment phase of the trial, two more girls also testified that Shumski had assaulted them in a similar manner.
