Synopsis: On 06-21-2014 at 4:35 PM a Mendocino County Sheriff's Deputy conducted a traffic enforcement stop on a vehicle for a minor traffic violation in the 1500 block of Lake Mendocino Drive in Ukiah, California.

When the Deputy contacted the occupants of the vehicle there were two subjects in the front seats and two subjects in the back seat.

The male subject in the rear seat appeared to be much older than the fifteen year old female seated next to him. They were seated in a manner which suggested they might be in a romantic relationship.

During the contact the male subject was identified as being Raymond Smith.

After further questioning of both Smith and the female it was determined they were involved in a sexual relationship for the past ten months.

Smith was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Mendocino County Jail on listed charges [288a PC Lewd acts with a child, 261.5 PC unlawful sex with a minor and 288a(2) Oral copulation] to be held in lieu of $75,000.00 bail.
