PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Sonia Satchell, Adult Sexual Assault Prosecution Unit
The Honorable James McFetridge sentenced Jorge Enrique Martinez Molina to 46 years to life in state prison. On December 1, 2022, a jury convicted Molina of assault to commit rape with a use of a firearm allegation; forcible sexual penetration with a foreign object; oral copulation by force, violence, duress, menace, and fear; and assault with a firearm.
Molina and the victim had ended their relationship. On September 25, 2021, the victim went out with her friends. Molina was texting her demanding to know her location and had used a tracking device to locate her. He then went to the victim’s house and waited for her to return home. When the victim returned home, she went to bed. Soon after, she awoke to Molina standing over her in the bedroom pointing a gun at her. At gunpoint, Molina demanded the victim have sex with him. He then sexually assaulted her while their children slept in the next bedroom. The victim fought Molina the entire time and was able to grab a phone to call 911.
