Prisoner with cancer gets reduction in sentence

Published

A convicted sex offender diagnosed with terminal cancer gets a reduction of his prison sentence for a La Crosse County sexual assault. 

Dominic Marak is allowed to serve two prison terms at the same time, instead of consecutively. 

The 55-year-old was found guilty in La Crosse County in 1999 of second-degree sexual assault and child enticement. 

He was sentenced to 18 years in prison on the first count, to be followed by 14 years for the second count, so it’s possible that he could be released soon from the Redgranite, Wis., prison. 

Marak has a history of felonies in other Wisconsin counties, as well. 

His attorney told the court that his client has cancer and also got COVID-19.   

Marak was convicted of sexually assaulting an underage girl in a La Crosse area motel room in 1998, 23 years ago.
