BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (CBS4) – A man who was found guilty of several charges in an attack on three young girls in a home in Summit County in March has been sentenced.
Sky Wodraska, 37, agreed to plead guilty to first-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, second-degree attempted kidnapping and third-degree assault. Thirteen other charges were dropped as part of the plea deal. He will serve 48 years in state prison under the agreement.
CBS4’s Matt Kroschel was in the courtroom on Wednesday and spoke exclusively with one of the young victims and her family who feels the plea agreement and 48-year sentence is fair.
The family wants to move on with their lives following an event the judge described as monstrous and the stuff of “nightmares.”
At the Great Divide Condominiums in Breckenridge in March, three young people were faced with something so awful prosecutors say it is one of the worst cases they have ever seen.
“Absolutely horrendous, one of our victims had her throat cut and was within probably millimeters of a fatal wound,” Assistant District Attorney John Franks said. “The youngest was duct-taped and bound.”
Wodraska addressed the victims in court saying he was sorry and took full responsibility for what he did.
“Three girls home alone and an armed intruder bent on mayhem and murder,” Franks said.
One of the brave victims spoke with CBS4 about the nightmare Wodraska put them through.
“I’m happy. I think he got was he deserved and I think he’s going to continue to get that for the 48 years,” said the young victim who, along with the other two, is a minor.
The victim said what happened following the attack has made healing easier.
“The support of the community has been great since we were in the hospital. Everybody has been super great,” the victim said.
With Wodraska locked up for decades, the community and the victims hope to move forward taking the next step in the healing process.
Since the three felonies, including attempted murder, are all considered violent crimes, Wodraska won’t be eligible for parole for at least 36 years.
