Marc Patrick O'Leary, 33 will spend the rest of his life behind bars for raping three women in Colorado and the attempted assault of a fourth person. He received a 327 and a half year sentence for his many crimes. Digital evidence recovered by Examiners assigned to the Rocky Mountain RCFL (RMRCFL) helped investigators bring the elusive serial rapist to justice. The RMRCFL aided the combined efforts of area law enforcement agencies which included the FBI's Denver Office, Colorado Bureau of Investigation, and the Lakewood, Westminster, Aurora and Golden Police Departments. The FBI's Denver Division, Golden Police Department and the Aurora Police Department are participating agencies in the RMRCFL and enlisted the laboratory's expertise with examining O'Leary's computer where Examiners found the names of three Colorado and two Washington State victims. RMRCFL Examiners also recovered between six and seven hundred victim photos taken by O'Leary from multiple flash memory camera cards.
SSA Sean O'Brien, director of the RMRCFL said, "This investigation reflects the power of partnership among law enforcement. Digital evidence recovered by RMRCFL Examiners played a significant and important role in securing a conviction. I am proud of their contributions to supporting this joint investigation, and making the citizens of Colorado safer by bringing a dangerous predator to justice."
The RMRCFL opened in 2006, and was accredited by the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/Laboratory Accreditation Board in 2008.
O'Leary faces similar charges in Washington State where investigators believed he may have committed two other sexual assaults. If found guilty, these additional sentence(s) would be ordered concurrent to the sentence handed down in Colorado.
