Trinity County Sheriff’s Office press release: 

Over the last several months, the Trinity County Sheriff’s Office Detective Division, has received multiple complaints that Derrick Riske had been contacting women within the community and propositioning them for sexual acts for money. An undercover operation using an audio wire was conducted in which enough information was obtained that the Trinity County District Attorney’s Office issued a warrant for Riske’s arrest on charges of soliciting prostitution, sexual battery, engaging and agreeing to engage in prostitution. Deputies and CHP Officers were advised of the warrant on Friday, March 25, 2016, and Derrick Riske was subsequently located downtown Weaverville at approximately 4:25pm. A CHP Officer conducted a traffic stop on Derrick Riske and Trinity County Sheriff’s Deputies assisted. Derrick Riske was found to be driving while under the influence and was subsequently arrested on the warrant and DUI charges. Derrick Riske was booked and later cited on the misdemeanor charges.

We believe there may be other victims in this matter. If you were a victim or know someone who was please  contact Trinity County Sheriff’s Detective Jayme Bayley at 530-623-8104.
