Case of Interest: Ulises Godinez

DATE:  August 6, 2015

CASE:  Ulises Godinez

PROSECUTOR:  Deputy District Attorney Quirina Orozco, Special Assault & Child Abuse Unit / Adult Sexual Assault Prosecution Unit

District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert announced that Ulises Godinez was convicted by jury of two counts of robbery with personal use of a firearm, forcible sodomy, sodomy of an unconscious person, sodomy of an intoxicated person, and furnishing marijuana to a minor.

On July 6, 2013, a female adult victim attended a house party where Godinez was a guest.  After consuming several alcoholic drinks, she passed out on the host’s couch. She woke up to find Godinez holding her down by the neck and sexually assaulting her.  The victim immediately reported the assault to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.  Godinez was not identified until months later.

On December 22, 2013, two girls, ages 16 and 17 years old, attended a gathering at Godinez’s house.  Godinez provided them with marijuana and engaged in sexual acts with the 17 year old.  He offered to take both girls home, but he instead drove to a sparsely populated area of Rancho Cordova where he pulled out a revolver and demanded the girls’ cells phones.  He then made the girls get out of his car and sped away. The girls found their way to a 7-11 and called 911.  Officers later located Godinez and found one of the cell phones in his car.

Godinez faces a maximum potential sentence of approximately 28 years in prison.  Sentencing is set for September 18, 2015 at 9:00 a.m. in Department 20 by the Honorable Michael Sweet.
