Compton school trustee Skyy Fisher accused in San Diego case

SAN DIEGO - A Compton Unified School District trustee wanted in San Diego County on suspicion of oral copulation of an unconscious victim was free from the Vista Detention Facility on $100,000 bail Friday, the U.S. Marshals Service reported.

Skyy Fisher, 31, was arrested Wednesday at his place of employment in the Los Angeles World Trade Center at 350 S. Figueroa St., on a warrant issued by the San Diego County Sheriff's Department, Deputy U.S. Marshal Dante Salazar said. He was then booked into the Vista Detention Facility.

The details of the claims against Fisher were not immediately made public, but 10News learned the case is being investigated by San Diego police.

10News learned the incident occurred in April, but police did not elaborate.

Fisher was arraigned in San Diego Superior Court on Thursday, subsequently posted $100,000 bail and was released, Salazar said.

Fisher told Los Angeles TV station NBC4 that he was "shocked."

"It was very hard when I found out that's what the charge was," he told NBC4 on Thursday. "It's very stressful for me, but my main goal is to defend my name."

Fisher was elected to the Compton Unified School Board of Trustees in 2011, and made headlines the following year after an obscenity laden podcast interview, in which he described Trayvon Martin using a homophobic term, was made public. He later issued an apology.

He was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving in November, and the case was pending, the Los Angeles Times reported.
