Their civilian legal cases have yet to be resolved and the Coast Guard has not taken any disciplinary action, aside from reassigning the men to different areas. To the victim’s dismay, Guillermo Gutierrez, 27, pleaded guilty to a Class C felony in fall 2018. However, he won’t be sentenced until the other guardsman, Salvador Zamora, 25, stands trial Gutierrez and Zamora were arrested in December 2017 after the Pacific County Sheriff’s Office completed an investigation. Investigators say the guardsmen and their alleged victim drank heavily and may have used drugs at a house party. Gutierrez allegedly had sex with the woman, then invited Zamora to have sex with her. Gutierrez allegedly recorded the rape on his phone, then shared it with other members of the Coast Guard through the Snapchat app….Zamora’s wife discovered a text conversation on his phone, in which Gutierrez assured him the victim wouldn’t accuse him of rape because she wouldn’t remember what happened. The wife reported the suspected crime to Coast Guard authorities. Gutierrez claims the sex was consensual, but police say the video shows them assaulting a woman who was clearly passed out. https://www.chinookobserver.com/news/coasting-along-still-no-penalties-for-guardsmen- suspected-of-rape/article_af3aeb7c-12c4-11e9-9605-1fcf06227f87.html Coast Guard/Murder California and Alaska/TUCKER, ETHAN W. /2018-2019-murder for leaving shipman to drown in frigid waters Navy Times 2019/12/27 Accused of murder, Coast Guard seaman headed back to court-martial.
