Sex videos played at rape trial

November 3, 2015

Richard Scott Brooks of raping the 17-year-old girl he met on Craigslist in July 2014. Brooks then allegedly pimped the teen out to a volunteer Cayucos fire captain.

Brooks faces numerous charges, including human trafficking, pimping, forcible rape and committing sex acts with an unconscious person. Oscar Higueros, a former Cayucos fire captain who allegedly paid Booker to have sex with the teen, faces charges in a separate trial.

From the time the alleged victim was 3 to 9-years-old, her grandfather repeatedly molested her, the teen testified. When she was 10-years-old, her grandfather shot himself in the head after she revealed the abuse, she said. Shortly afterwards, her parents divorced.

The alleged victim, now 18-years-old, said she was lonely at the time she contacted Brooks. She wanted someone to spend time with while her mother and younger sister were out of California on vacation.

Brooks promised the teen money in exchange for sex with other men in what was labeled a business partnership, she testified.  The teen drove to the Bay Area, picked Brooks up and brought him to Los Osos.

Brooks then filmed himself having sex with the teen and used the videos to recruit clients. Videos of the sex acts remain on the teen’s phone.

The teen said she went along with Brooks when he demanded more sex acts because she was afraid of him. Brooks said he would kill her if she did not comply.

Brooks allegedly had sex with the girl at her Los Osos home for four days. She was unconscious during some of the sex acts, Deputy District Attorney Greg Devitt said.

Defense attorney Matt Guerrero told jurors the sex was consensual, the teen pursued it and Brooks and she took part in sexual role playing. She wrote “I’ll be the perfect little slut” and she wanted to be a “sex slave.” Guerrero said the victim lied about her age, claiming she was 18.

Most people have not seen this subculture of sex, Guerrero said.

The teen also testified Monday that Higueros agreed to pay $150 for a half-hour with her. She said she did not receive her portion of the money, and that was unfair.

Her testimony continues Tuesday.

    Dear victim: I’m sorry this all happened to you. It’s not your fault. Take what you have and make a new life with your new, stronger, mind and choose to be happy and move on. I’m sorry our culture has caused you so much pain.

      Well…..not everyone thinks it is in poor taste to blab all around town the facts her husband obviously told her about what went on in a courtroom while he is a juror. Myself, I think that is grounds for some sort of legal decision. You cannot have a fair trial with everyone talking about evidence that is only privy to the jury and other officers of the court.

    Matt Guerrero sounds like an idiot to me. Blame the victim, and saw this is a subculture most have not seen. You sound like such a worldly man Mr Guerrero, does this subculture live in Oceano with you?

      Audi. Your extreme lack of compassion is eclipsed only by your lack of understanding of the psychological effects of childhood sexual victimization. Glad you love your Audi though! Hopefully it will give you a big hug if you ever get depressed and need a little cheering up.

        What happened to this girl is sad.. especially when she was young.. but SHE answered the ad.. SHE went to pick him up… SHE agreed to be his sex slave.. SHE did drugs with him… and she might have even enjoyed some of it.. until the party was over.. which is very convenient because she could be arrested for a few felonies here…

        Compassion is one thing but not holding someone to standards.. even a 17 year old is detrimental to their life! Have you seen one of the latest fads where parents hire someone to “kidnap” their kid?? The guy contacts her online.. pretends to be a kid, gains her trust, arranges a meet.. then SURPRISE hes not 16 but hes 46 and the parents are right behind him!! And that kid has a lot to explain and might be on restriction until shes 35!!
        So do we just not care?? Do we not enforce some responsibility?? Or hold them accountable for at least what they did?? Why are these kids so gullible??
