Humboldt County Man Sentenced to 22 Years for Child Sexual Assaults The California Department of Justice provided analysis of physical evidence

HUMBOLDT COUNTY – On April 13, 2021, Jonathan Eisenhard Marcks, 36, of Arcata, was sentenced to 22 years in state prison after Marcks pled guilty to continuous sexual abuse of a child and lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14.

On July 6, 2019, in an interview with the Humboldt County Child Abuse Services Team, 11-year-old Jane Doe disclosed that she had been sexually abused by her father over several years.  A subsequent investigation led by Arcata Police Detective Victoria Johnson yielded a recorded phone call that included self-incriminating statements by Marcks and physical evidence at Marcks’ residence.

Deputy District Attorney Whitney Timm prosecuted the case with the assistance of District Attorney Victim Witness Advocate Caitlyn LaHaie and District Attorney Investigator Ryan Hill.  The California Department of Justice provided analysis of physical evidence.

“Our thoughts for a brighter future are with the victim in this case, and we applaud her courage.  We also thank the law enforcement personnel who investigated this case and California DOJ criminalists who analyzed physical evidence,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.
