BOISE — The man accused of attacking two women at the Boise Towne Square Mall on May 14 could face up to 65 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
Greggory Lee Macho, 31, is accused of sexually assaulting a woman in her car in the malls parking lot, then running over a second woman who was coming to her aid. He was arrested June 5, after police released a suspect sketch and photos of his distinctive teal truck.
Macho faces felony counts of kidnapping, aggravated battery, aggravated assault, and destruction of evidence. He is also being charged with using a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, an enhancement that could add 15 years to the aggravated battery sentence.
Kidnapping carries a sentence of up to 25 years, while an aggravated battery conviction could net Macho a 15-year sentence. Both aggravated assault and destruction of evidence are punishable by up to 5 years in prison.
At Wednesdays hearing, the judge warned Macho that if he was found guilty, those sentences could be ordered to be served consecutively, meaning he would have to serve them back-to-back, instead of at the same time.
Macho was granted a continuance to enter a plea. His new hearing will be July 31 at 1:30 p.m.
The mall attack suspects wife, Jessica Brynn Macho, and his brother, Richard Scott Macho, have also been charged with destruction of evidence. Police said Greggory Macho painted his truck and removed a bed cover and a number of stickers after the attack, and his wife and brother are charged with helping him.
Police also said that Jessica and Richard were aware of the attacks, and helped Greggory avoid arrest. Each faces up to five years in prison if convicted.
Greggory and Jessica Macho have delivered newspapers for the Idaho Statesman as independent contractors since February.
The three individual cases have been combined, and Jessica Macho and Richard Macho are also scheduled to enter pleas July 31.
