The warden at the California prison where the former “Full House” star Lori Loughlin served out her sentence for her role in the college admissions scandal has been found guilty of running a “rape club.”

Prison Warden Found Guilty

Daily Mail reported that Ray Garcia is facing 15 years in prison after being found guilty of eight charges relating to him allegedly sexually assaulting female inmates and forcing some of them to pose naked in their cells. He is one of five workers at the prison in Dublin, California to be charged with assaulting inmates, and he was the first to go to trial. 

Garcia, 55, retired last year after naked photos of female inmates were found in his possession by the FBI, with him claiming that the images were taken by accident. He then faced charges of abusing three inmates between December of 2019 and July of 2021.

Loughlin served two months in the prison at the end of 2020, so she was at the facility during that time period. She was sent there after allegedly paying $500,000 in bribe money to have her two daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, even though neither girl had ever rowed before.

Garcia Allegedly Followed A Pattern

Garcia was accused of following a pattern that began with him flattering inmates and escalated to him sexually assaulting them while keeping them quiet by promising to transfer them to lower security prisons. Prosecutors said that while committing these atrocities, Garcia was simultaneously in charge of staff and inmate training on reporting abuse and complying with the federal Prison Rape Elimination Act. 

It’s been alleged that Garcia also forced female inmates to strip naked for him while he made his rounds.

“We see inmates dressing and stuff … and if they’re undressing, I’ve already looked,” he told the FBI last year. “I don’t, like, schedule a time like, `You be undressed, and I’ll be there.'”

An inmate identified only as Melissa claimed that Garcia told her that he “wanted to f—k” her and showed her naked photos of himself “all the time,” according to The New York Post

“He would always talk about his penis,” she testified in court. “He had sexual fantasies and I allowed it.”

Garcia reportedly abused female inmates in areas of the prison where he knew that there were no cameras, according to prosecutors.

John Stamos Defends Loughlin

Given the fact that Loughlin was such a high profile inmate at the prison, it’s likely that she managed to escape Garcia’s perverted crimes. Loughlin’s former “Full House” co-star John Stamos recently spoke out to defend her for her role in the college admissions scandal.

“I am going to say this, and she said I could. She wasn’t really the architect of any of it — she was in the way background,” Stamos said. “She didn’t know what was going on.”

He went on to say that Loughlin has more than made up for her crime because she “paid a lot of money. She set up a college fund for kids, and she went to f—ing jail, man.”

Loughlin has remained silent about the allegations against Garcia so far. It remains to be seen if she’ll speak out about them at all.
