A former U.S. diplomat may face life in prison, after pleading guilty to raping and drugging 23 women over the course of several years, while he was employed at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City.
An investigation into Raymond was launched after a nude woman was spotted screaming for help on the balcony of his Mexico City apartment last May.
The woman told the FBI she had no recollection of events after consuming drinks and food provided by Raymond.
He was arrested in La Mesa last October, on one count of coercion and enticement.
‘Brian Raymond betrayed the trust granted to him as a U.S. government employee representing the United States abroad by engaging in years of predatory conduct sexually abusing, exploiting, and recording vulnerable women he targeted in the United States and around the world,’ Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Polite Jr. of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, said in a statement.
