Sacramento County sheriff's deputies arrested an employee Monday on suspicion of having an illegal sexual relationship with a 17-year-old female student.
Sean Darnell Davis, 42, worked as a campus supervisor at in Sacramento from 2008 until the district placed him on paid administrative leave Monday, district spokesperson Elizabeth Graswich said.
A sheriff's department press release accuses Davis of performing "multiple unlawful sex acts" with the unnamed student between August 2011 and February 2012.
Sheriff's department spokesperson Jason Ramos said investigators learned about the relationship from a third party and interviewed both Davis and the student. Detectives were looking into whether there were other victims, he said.
"Because he was an employee of the district and had daily interaction with minors, we have to consider the possiblity that there may be others," Ramos said.
Campus supervisors "are the eyes and ears on campus, make sure kids are in the right place when they need to be and do other things of that nature" Graswich said.
She said Davis passed a Justice Department fingerprinting when he was hired. School officials learned of the investigation over the weekend, she said, and responded Monday by placing Davis on leave, just before he was arrested.
Davis was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail and is being held on $25,000 bail.
Sheriff's deputies are asking anyone with information about possible additional victims to call the Sheriff's Department's Sexual and Elder Assault Bureau at 916-874-5070.
