Former Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Giancarlo Scotti, 33, pleaded no contest on September 5 for sexually assaulting six female inmates two years ago.
Scotti entered an open plea to six felony counts of sexual activity with a detainee in a detention facility and two misdemeanor counts of sexual activity with a detainee in a detention facility. An open plea means a sentence was not negotiated with the District Attorney’s Office.
According to KUSI News, in August and September 2017, Scotti engaged in unlawful sex acts with female inmates, ranging in age from 24 to 42 years old, at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California.
In one instance, Scotti ordered two female cellmates to perform oral sex on him. Scotti later took the women to a shower area where he had unlawful sexual intercourse with both of them.
In another incident, the defendant had a female inmate perform oral sex on him while she was in her cell.
Scotti is expected to be sentenced to two years in state prison on Sept. 26 in Department 118 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center. He faces up to seven years and four months in prison if he fails to appear for sentencing.
