Former CIA Officer Pleads Guilty that he Drugged and Abused Dozens of Women Across Multiple Countries
Charges, Arrest, and Discovery of Drugged and Abused Incidents
According to source, Brian Jeffrey Raymond, a former CIA officer, has pleaded guilty that he drugged and abused at least two dozen women in multiple countries, and he faces a sentence of 24 to 30 years in prison.
Raymond, who took hundreds of explicit videos and photos of unconscious women dating back to 2006, was described as an “experienced sexual predator” by federal court documents. He drugged and abused multiple women between 2006 and 2020, also recording at least 28 nude or partially nude victims.
Raymond’s arrest in 2020 in Mexico City followed a distressing incident when a woman he had met on the dating app Tinder was found screaming for help from his balcony, leading to a neighbor calling the police.
Legal Action, Investigations, and Sentencing in Drugged and Abused Case
Federal prosecutors have stated that Raymond would meet victims on dating apps and invite them to his apartment for drinks, where he drugged and abused them. The FBI initiated an investigation and set up a website to locate potential additional victims who may have been drugged and abused.
Having traveled extensively for work and leisure Raymond worked at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City from August 2018 until May 2020. He has pleaded guilty to charges of sexual abuse, abusive sexual contact, coercion and enticement and transportation of obscene material related to his drugging and abuse of victims.
His sentencing is scheduled for September 19 and the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington D.C., confirmed that Raymond will face supervised release for life and restitution to his victims who were drugged and abused. An attorney representing Raymond has not yet responded to requests for comment on the drugging and abuse allegations.
