Luis Miranda

Senior auto equipment operator

The complainant filed the complaint on behalf of a female UC Santa Cruz student and orientation staff member. The student alleged that during the orientation period, she had been assigned to ride on Luis Miranda's shuttle bus. The student alleged that she had entered the bus and, before she could even say hello, Miranda had touched her hair without her consent and called her "pretty." She also alleged that when the two were alone on the bus later in the day, Miranda offered to take free professional pictures of her and gave her his business card, telling her that he took nude pictures and pictures of women in lingerie. He also allegedly asked her whether she watched pornography and told her that he had previously worked in the pornography industry. Before this incident, Miranda had three similar sexual misconduct complaints filed against him. He denied the allegations. His employment was later terminated.
