Mesa man sentenced to seven years for sexually assaulting woman in public

(FLORENCE, AZ) - A Mesa man has been sentenced to seven years in prison for sexually assaulting a pregnant woman at a Casa Grande Walmart.

On May 22nd, 2023, Pinal County Superior Court Judge Daniel Washburn sentenced Andrew Magana, 21, to seven years in the Arizona Department of Corrections.

In April, a jury found Magana guilty of Sexual Assault, a Class Two Felony.

In June, 2021, Magana assaulted a pregnant woman who was shopping at a Walmart in Casa Grande. According to court documents, Magana, who was at the store with his girlfriend and young son at the time, ventured to a different part of the store where he located the victim, who was pushing a child in her shopping cart. Magana walked up to the victim and inappropriately grabbed her. The victim was able to knock off Magana's hat and sunglasses before he ran away. The hat and glasses later provided a DNA match to the defendant. Magana was also captured on store surveillance video.

Magana was on federal probation at the time of the incident.
