Texas Woman Receives 30-Year Prison Sentence for Role in Killing U.S. Soldier Vanessa Guillén

A Texas woman was sentenced to 30 years in prison on Monday for helping to dispose of the body of U.S. soldier Vanessa Guillén, who was killed in 2020.

Cecily Aguilar, 25, pleaded guilty last year to one count of accessory to murder and three counts of false representation or making a false statement. Aguilar was given the maximum allowable sentence.

“Our hope is that today’s sentence brings a sense of relief and justice to the Guillén family, who have endured such pain throughout these past few years,” U.S. Attorney Jaime Esparza for the Western District of Texas said. “Ms. Aguilar’s actions were indefensible, and she will now face the maximum penalty for the choices she made.”
