DA details charges against men accused in Cayucos teen rape case

Sep 4, 2014

The San Luis Obispo County District Attorney filed charges Thursday against a San Francisco man for raping a minor this summer in Cayucos.

Richard Brooks, 38, is in custody and charged with 16 counts including forcible rape and sodomy of an unconscious 17-year-old girl.

The most serious crime leveled against Brooks is that of Human Trafficking of a Minor for a Sex Act, which carries a possible 15-years-to-life sentence in state prison.

Also charged in this case is 38-year-old Oscar Higueros, a Cayucos Firefighter who was arrested last week on 33 similar charges, but minus the trafficking charge.
