SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Former Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Shauna Bishop is headed to jail for having sex with a 16-year-old boy. After she’s released, she’ll have to register as a sex offender.
Bishop was arrested in 2019 after the teen’s father, who also worked for the department, expressed concern to his ex-wife about Bishop’s relationship with the boy. The father claimed Bishop was “grooming” the teen.
Bishop pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful sexual intercourse in July. The other four charges she was facing were dismissed.
On Wednesday, Bishop was sentenced to one year in county jail, five years of probation, and she must register as a sex offender. She was ordered to serve 180 days on work projects when she’s released. She can’t have contact with the teen or his family, no alcohol use, and no pornography use for five years. She was also ordered not to have any contact with children under 18 unless approved by the courts. Any violation of those orders would result in three years behind bars.
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.
