Alleged teen victim testifies in former Cayucos firefighter's rape trial

Posted: Updated:

An 18-year old girl testified against a former Cayucos firefighter at his rape trial Tuesday.  The teen was 17 when she claims 40-year old Oscar Higueros had sex with her.  This is the same young woman involved in the Richard Brooks human trafficking case, which prosecutors say led her to Higueros.

The teen goes by “Jane Doe” in court.  She said she started off being attracted to Higueros and he made her feel safe, but her feelings quickly changed to fear as she says she felt forced to not only live at his home, but abide by very specific rules set by the 40-year old. 

Her obligations to Higueros, she testified, ranged from making his morning coffee and doing household chores, even to calling him "Daddy," and her responding to “Kitty.” Each duty, she claimed, came with very specific guidelines as to how it had to be completed.

"Everything had a consequence if I didn't do it the correct way,” testified Jane Doe on Tuesday.

After three weeks of this lifestyle, along with daily consensual sex, the teen claimed she made Higueros angry when she had a male friend visit her at his home, and he had "hate rape" with her, breaking her wrist. 

Miss Doe testified about how her grandfather molested her as a child and later committed suicide when she came forward about it when she was 10.  She said her father always blamed her for it.

Higueros made her feel protected because, she claimed, he said he had been molested as a child, too.  She said Higueros said he would be the father figure to her that she never had. 

The teen is set to testify again Wednesday afternoon.
