Buellton man accused of having sexual contact with minors pleads not guilty to 13 felony charges

A Buellton man accused of having inappropriate sexual contact with minors while working as a consultant at Santa Ynez Valley High School District pleaded not guilty in Santa Barbara Superior Court on Friday.

Gregory Scott Ray, 52, worked as a yearbook consultant and salesman at the high school over the course of several years. Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office says he used a social media app to reach out to victims.

On Friday, Ray was charged with 13 felony charges related to sex acts with underage children.

Charges include two counts of lewd and lascivious act on a dependent adult with force, oral copulation of a person under the age of 14, sexual penetration with a foreign object on a victim under the age of 16, and sodomy of a person under the age of 14 with force.

Ray pleaded not guilty to all 13 charges.

He is set to appear in court for his preliminary hearing on Monday.
