Pastor Scott Shaull indicted

Scott_douglas_schaull Scott Douglas Shaull is the former pastor Bayside Covenant Church in Roseville. He’s one of 12 people accused of political corruption in San Jacinto.

Riverside County prosecutors today announced a 155-count indictment in a large public corruption investigation that includes charges against several elected officials.

The indictments target nine people, including four of the five members of the San Jacinto City Council,

The charges, which include 56 felony counts, allege that the participants, including the mayor of San Jacinto, conspired to launder campaign funds into campaign committees.

"These elected officials were entrusted with power and misused that power to advance their own political ambition and to satisfy their greed," said Riverside County Dist. Atty. Rod Pacheco.

Shaull’s involvement is unclear to me at this point. His profile does not explain his involvement in the scandal.
