Jury convicts Fairfield man in machete attack

FAIRFIELD — A 38-year-old Fairfield man will likely spend the rest of his life behind bars after being found guilty Friday of seven felonies relating to the March 2012 machete attack on his ex-wife.

It took a jury about five hours to find Gustavo A. Ibarra guilty of first-degree attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, mayhem, false imprisonment, burglary, domestic violence and making criminal threats.

The verdicts came after a two-week trial.

Ibarra’s ex-wife filed for divorce in July 2011. Eight months later he showed unexpectedly at her Peach Tree Drive home. She greeted him at the front door and he took a machete with a 2-foot-long blade and swung it at her head, seriously injuring her. She also suffered stab wounds to her back and a hand before family members tackled Ibarra and subdued him until police arrived.

At the time of the attack, he had an outstanding arrest warrant for previously violating a restraining order his ex-wife had obtained.

Judge Wendy G. Getty ordered Ibarra back to court for sentencing May 23.

Oh that's right, all you whiney little peons that make mountains our of mole hills forget to mention stuff like this because it doesn't fit into your personal agenda. (Isn't that right Rich G.?) This one fits my personal agenda: Stirring the pot to watch you fools react. It's my amusement my little pawns.

    And what have you done to help Fairfield-Suisun and Law Enforcement Officers, the DA or Law Abiding Citizens? Oh that's right. You think posting on a webpage is all that. So sit on your rear and watch as the rest of us take part in life.

    Good thing Judge Bower didn't hear try the case. He would have held it was a misdemeanor and not domestic violence based on his personal experience.

    Major Democrat and Obama campaign donor Gurbaksh Chahal, the CEO of San Francisco based tech startup RadiumOne, was caught on camera brutally beating his girlfriend, including kicking her 117 times, sometimes to the head. The liberal Democrat also threatened several times to murder his girlfriend, according to police reports. His sentence for the brutal assault? Chahal received an extremely light tap on the wrist, only 25 days of community service and no jail time, according to the Daily Mail, which also reports that Chahal attempted to smother his girlfriend during the beating. According to the Washington Free Beacon, progressive Chahal has contributed over $100,000 since 2011, all to Democrats, and that he visited Obama personally in 2011, and the First Lady at the White House in 2012.
