On May 16, 2016, Mancilla entered a no contest plea to two counts of lewd and lascivious conduct on a child under 14 and admitted a special allegation that he molested more than one victim. Mancilla was accused of touching one of the victims between 2008 and 2015. After the first victim disclosed to law enforcement, a pre-text call was arranged between her and Mancilla wherein he admitted that he was aroused by her when she was just 5 years and began touching her. A second victim reported Mancilla touched her between 2014 and 2016. Each victim stated that Mancilla told them not to tell anyone.

In exchange for his plea to the two counts, the remaining charges against him were dismissed. Mancilla will serve each prison term for each victim term consecutively, for a total of 30 years in state prison.
