Scott Maus DA reject memo
Scott Maus was accused of groping a woman and engaging in sex acts with her in his patrol vehicle in the parking lot of the Puente Hills Mall, according to a district attorney memo. The deputy admitted to the encounter in 2000 but said it was consensual, the memo said. Prosecutors declined to charge Maus with sexual assault, concluding that jurors would likely find that the woman’s actions were voluntary. The county paid her $150,000 to settle a lawsuit she filed over the incident.
