Once-Honored Placer County Sheriff’s Deputy Arrested On Teen Sex Charges
PLACER COUNTY (CBS13) — A Placer County Sheriff’s deputy is out of jail, but not out of trouble. He’s accused of having a sexual relationship with a minor.
The allegations date back several years, but as CBS13 first reported, the actual investigation didn’t begin until a few weeks ago.
Ken Skogen isn’t used to being on the other side of the law. The deputy was arrested by his own team, accused of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old sheriff’s department volunteer.
The allegations against the 35-year-old date back to 2011 when another deputy came forward to report Skogen and the questionable relationship with the minor. The district attorney’s office investigated the allegations, and Skogen was placed on leave in late May.
We stopped by his last known address. Another search led us to another address where a woman told CBS13 Skogen no longer lived at the home and drove away.
This isn’t the first time Skogen has made news. In 2010, his 3-year-old daughter accidentally shot herself with one of Skogen’s guns. The case was investigated, but not charges were ever filed.
In 2009, Skogen received the public safety officer medal of valor for pulling an elderly woman from her burning home during the 49er Fire.
We reached out to the district attorney’s office for comment, but they refused, saying the investigation is ongoing.
Skogen is scheduled to face a judge on child sex charges next month.
