Detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Internal Criminal Investigations Bureau (ICIB) conducted an investigation into an allegation of a department employee engaging in sexual misconduct with a detainee(s) at the Century Regional Detention Facility between August of 2017 and January of 2018.  The allegations occurred under former Sheriff Jim McDonnell’s tenure as Los Angeles County Sheriff. 

Pursuant to this investigation, 29-year-old Roy’ce Bass surrendered to ICIB investigators on July 7, 2020.  Mr. Bass was assigned to the Century Regional Detention Facility as a custody assistant.  He was charged with four counts of Engaging in Sexual Activity with a Detainee, 289.6(h) PC. He was booked at Marina Del Rey Station by ICIB investigators and released after posting a $100,000 bail. His next court date is November 13, 2020.

The Sheriff’s Department finds these allegations deeply troubling. We are committed to transparency and holding our employees fully accountable.
