YUBA CITY MAN FOUND GUILTY ON CHILD SEX CHARGES

A Yuba City man charged with attempting to have sex with a child he met on Craigslist, has been found guilty in Sutter County Court. Derek Rudd, the former owner of Yuba City’s historic Teegarden House, was arrested in June 2016, as part of a sting operation when he arranged to meet what he thought was a 13-year-old boy. Instead, it was an undercover officer, and Rudd was taken into custody when he arrived at a predesignated south Yuba City location. He faces up to four years in prison and will be required to register as a sex offender.
