    People v. Higinio Gonzalez Machorro

    Santa Barbara Case No. 20CR01403

    Santa Barbara County District Attorney John T. Savrnoch announced on December 15 that a jury found Higinio Gonzalez Machorro guilty of Rape of an Intoxicated Woman in violation of Penal Code section 261(a)(3). The defendant raped Jane Doe while she was intoxicated during a party in Isla Vista on July 4, 2017. The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office, Victim Advocates, and Senior Deputy District Attorney Megan Chanda worked tirelessly to seek justice in this case.

The District Attorney’s Office extends the utmost gratitude to Jane Doe for her perseverance and courage.

    The defendant will be sentenced on January 19, 2024, in Department 11 of the Santa Barbara Superior Court before Honorable Von Deroian. The defendant was remanded into custody and faces a maximum sentence of six years. The defendant will also be required to register as a sex offender, pursuant to Penal Code section 290.
