A “cruel” former safety administrator and manager convicted of sexually abusing inmates at an all-women’s prison in California known as “Club Fed” was sentenced Friday to serve 5.25 years behind bars.

John Russell Bellhouse, 40, cried when he was convicted in June of two counts of sexual abuse of a ward and three counts of sexually abusive contact for crimes committed from December 2019 to December 2020.

Bellhouse’s offenses were part of a wide-ranging scandal of sexual abuse at FCI Dublin, whose former warden Ray Garcia was convicted of abusing inmates and former prison chaplain James Theodore Highhouse was convicted of sexually assaulting an inmate who was seeking spiritual guidance.

Several corrections officers have also pleaded guilty to sexual abuse charges amid DOJ Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz’s still-ongoing probe of sexual abuse committed by FCI Dublin employees. FCI Dublin is otherwise known as the lockup where actresses Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman,  two convicts in the college admissions cheating scandal, and convicted NXIVM cult member Allison Mack served sentences.
