SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy on trial for charges of having sex with a 16-year-old has pleaded guilty.

Shauna Bishop was arrested back in 2019. She was facing four counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, as well as a misdemeanor count of annoying or molesting a child.

Deputy Shauna Bishop stands beside a suspect in court while on duty.

The Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office revealed that Bishop had pleaded guilty on Wednesday to one count of unlawful sexual intercourse. The other four charges were dismissed.

Bishop will be required to register as a sex offender, according to the court. She also faces up to one year behind bars, and five years of formal probation.

Court documents had previously revealed that the teen’s father — who also worked for the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department — expressed concern to his ex-wife about Bishop’s relationship with the boy. The father claimed Bishop was “grooming” the teen.

The five-year veteran resigned from the department in August 2019 after she was arrested. She had most recently worked as a patrol deputy at the north station.

Bishop is scheduled to be sentenced on September 23.

    She didn’t claim she feared for her life?

    I dont understand that when its women offenders, media outlets tend to use the words “unlawful sex with a minor” rather than “statutory rape”. stop downplaying the severity of it, and call it for what it is.

    Glad she didn’t use anorexia as a legal defense as so many white women seem to get away with.

    Lucky 16 year old. I’d bet he had the time of his life, probably never forget it. I know I would treasure those thoughts for a lifetime. All I got at 16 from an older woman (maybe 20) was a long and deep kiss. It sold me.
