John Schenberger1.jpgA former Folsom resident has been booked in Sacramento County Jail, suspected by police of 109 counts of lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14 years old.

John C. Schenberger, 44, was booked into jail after being arrested in Fremont, Alameda County, by police on Wednesday. He was booked on suspicion of 31 counts, but police said they believe he really committed 109 sexual acts against a child.

Schenberger worked for a technology company in Fremont.

Schenberger told the arresting officers that he was aware he would eventually be arrested, police said. Folsom detectives transported Schenberger to Sacramento jail.

The sexual assaults on the child are suspected to have occurred in 2003 in Folsom. The victim was a 12-year-old girl in 2003.

He is also under investigation by El Dorado County and Portland, Ore., law enforcement.
