Cecily Aguilar Sentenced For Her Role In Vanessa Guillén’s Murder
The disappearance of Vanessa Guillén in April of 2020 brought much media attention to Central Texas. After her remains were found nearly two months later, the journey for justice was already in motion.
Cecily Aguilar, who stood accused of assisting in concealing the body of Guillén, plead guilty in November of 2022 to three counts of false statement or representation and one count of accessory to murder after the fact. Her boyfriend, Aaron Robinson, was to be arrested for the murder of Guillén, but he took his own life before police brought him into custody.
Now, almost one year later, Aguilar has now been sentenced for her crimes.
Cecily Aguilar's Sentence
