Tehachapi woman accused of having sex with teen boy

TEHACHAPI, Calif. — A Tehachapi woman is behind bars, accused of having sex with a 14-year-old boy.

Bear Valley Police say Rachel Ruth Schellenberg, 41, was the focus of an investigation after they got a report of lewd activity.

Schellenberg faces three felony charges.

"One for lewd activities with a minor, one for the oral copulation, and one for the unlawful sex," Bear Valley Police Sgt. Dave Watts told Eyewitness Tuesday morning.

He said Schellenberg turned herself in at the BVS police station on Monday night.

"I'm glad she turned herself in," Tehachapi resident Dominic Durham said. He doesn't know Schellenberg, and word of the case is just filtering through the community.
