Miami-Dade County, FL (January 4, 2019) – On Tuesday of this week, a mental health technician was arrested on accusations that he raped a patient at the hospital where he worked. He has been identified as 40-year-old Fernando Felix Ramos-Garcia.
On the night in question, Ramos-Garcia was working in the hospital when he entered the patient’s room and forced her to perform oral sex on him. He then walked and stood in the doorway to ensure that nobody was coming down the hall. He then went back to the bed of the victim, covered her mouth and raped her so severely that she started to bleed.
When deputies spoke with Ramos-Garcia, he confessed to engaging in oral sex and intercourse with the victim. However, he denied that it was non-consensual and said that she agreed to it.
Now, Ramos-Garcia is charged with sexual battery on a person over the age of 18 and sexual misconduct at a mental health facility.
