A retired corrections officer has been arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting at least 13 inmates at California’s largest women’s prison.

Gregory Rodriguez, 54, who worked at the Central California Women’s Facility (CCWF) in Chowchilla, faces 96 counts, including 39 individual sexual assaults, officials said.

He was held in Madera County Jail on $7.8 million bail after his arrest by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation’s (CDCR) Office of Internal Affairs. If found guilty, he faces more than 300 years in prison. The facility is approximately 160 miles southeast of San Francisco.
