Riverside Deputy Charged With Attack On Teen

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP)- A Riverside County sheriff's deputy has pleaded not guilty to sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl.

Raymond Vidales, 44, was arrested Friday and entered pleas in Superior Court to five counts of sexual battery, child molestation and rape with a foreign object.

Vidales was freed on $100,000 bail.

Prosecutors contend Vidales, a 22-year veteran of the Sheriff's
Department, assaulted the girl in November 2005 in Perris while he was off duty. Sheriff's Sgt. Dean Spivacke says Vidales was having a relationship with the teen's mother at the time.

Authorities said the teen reported the incident last month.

Vidales has been placed on paid leave pending the outcome of the
case.
