Ex-U.S. government employee pleads guilty to drugging, sexually abusing women


(The Center Square) – A former employee of the U.S. Embassy in Mexico has pleaded guilty to drugging and sexually abusing women in multiple countries over several years.

The crimes included photographing and video recording more than two dozen nude and partially nude women without their consent while they were unconscious.

Brian Jeffrey Raymond, 47, of La Mesa, California, was employed by the U.S. government at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City. He pleaded guilty as part of a deal with prosecutors.

He admitted to drugging and sexually assaulting several women in his embassy-leased housing and elsewhere between 2006 and 2020. Additionally, Raymond said that, over 14 years, he photographed or video recorded 28 victims while they were nude or partially nude.

The recordings show Raymond touching and manipulating the victim’s bodies while they were unconscious and incapable of consent. Raymond attempted to delete the explicit photographs and videos depicting the victims after learning about the criminal investigation, according to prosecutors.

Under the terms of plea agreement, Raymond will face between 24 and 30 years in prison and supervised release for life. He will also have to pay mandatory restitution to the victims of his criminal offenses.

Sentencing hearings are scheduled for Sept. 18 and 19, 2024.
