De Soto mother Rachel Perez convicted in shocking child abuse case

Photos of those involved in the Rachel Perez child abuse case. Perez is now serving a 102-month sentence after pleading guilty to child abuse and attempted second-degree murder for leaving her 6-year-old son in the attic of her home in De Soto last August.

Johnson County Sheriff's officer Mark Rokusek is one of several deputies who found Rachel Perez's in the attic of her home. Rokusek described the scene as “shocking” and initially thought the boy was a toddler because of his size.
