United States Government Employee Brian Raymond (Full Name: Brian Jeffrey Raymond), of La Mesa, Pleaded Guilty To Drugging and Sexually Abusing Dozens of Women

pexels-sora-shimazaki-5668481LA MESA, CALIFORNIA (March 4, 2024) – A former United States government employee identified as Brian Raymond has pleaded guilty to drugging and sexually abusing dozens of women.

The sexual assaults took place in multiple countries over a period of fourteen years. Brian Raymond is facing 24 to 30 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting and taking videos of at least 28 unconscious women.

Court documents reveal that the sexual assaults took place at the embassy-leased housing where Brian Raymond resided in Mexico. The defendant was first arrested in fall 2020 in La Mesa.

A full investigation remains ongoing at this time.

 

Liability For Sexual Assaults Involving Government Employees

 Sexual assault remains alarmingly common, both in and outside of the workplace. According to the Centers for Disease Control, “Over half of women and almost 1 in 3 men have experienced sexual violence involving physical contact during their lifetimes. One in 4 women and about 1 in 26 men have experienced completed or attempted rape.” There are a number of steps that employers should take in order to prevent sexual abuse.

  • Employers should perform a thorough background check on all employees.
  • Employers should adequately monitor their employees during work hours.
  • Employers should thoroughly investigate all allegations of sexual misconduct.

Depending on the facts of any case, an employer could be liable for the sexual abuse of one of their employees. If a company or government entity knew (or should have known) that one of their employees was committing sexual assault but failed to act, this could form the basis of a civil claim. It is important that certain steps are taken after any instance of sexual abuse.

  • Eyewitnesses should be interviewed.
  • Surveillance footage should be sought.
  • A police report should be created.
  • An experienced sexual abuse attorney should be contacted.

By the time any person is arrested for sexual assault, there are likely many red flags that were missed. Sadly, though, government agencies will often fight hard to deny liability if one of their employees sexually assaults someone. This is why it is so important that evidence is properly preserved. Any person who is sexually abused by a government employee may be able to seek some measure of justice through a civil claim.
