A 39-year-old man employed by the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department as an "on-call" deputy pleaded not guilty today to sexual assault in Placer County Superior Court.

Bail was set at $1 million for Eric Cephus (photo left).

Cephus, wearing an orange jail jumpsuit, spoke softly to the judge when he said he understood his right during the brief arraignment. He is charged with one felony count each of lewd acts on a child under the age of 14 and transporting a person for a sex act.
