Ubaldo Zapuche-Landaverde

Ubaldo Zapuche-Landaverde of Celina was sentenced last week to 35 years in prison without parole for repeatedly sexually assaulting a girl over a five-year period. 

Ubaldo Zapuche-Landaverde, 37, of Celina, was sentenced to 35 years in prison without parole last week for repeated sexual assaults of a child.

The jury found Zapuche-Landaverde guilty on all counts and sentenced him to 35 years in prison without parole for continuous sexual abuse of a child, 15 years for each of two counts of indecency with a child and 10 years for the third indecency count.  

The sentences are concurrent.

“The jury made sure he won’t be hurting any more children,” Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis said. 

In September 2014 authorities received a tip that Zapuche-Landaverde was sexually abusing a 15-year-old girl who was known to his family.  

Based on the tip a Collin County Sheriff’s deputy went to girl's school to meet with the her. She was taken to the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County for a forensic interview.  

During the interview the girl gave corroborating details of five years of ongoing sexual abuse starting at age 10, which occurred at various locations in Collin County.
