Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Charged With Child Sex Crimes

Shauna Bishop, 44

A five year veteran of the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department, Deputy Shauna Bishop, 44, surrendered herself to custody of the Sacramento County Jail on multiple sex crimes.

When the accusation of sexual contact with a 16-year-old was leveled in May, Bishop was placed on paid administrative leave. Though she is a Deputy that works at times with troubled youth, the internal investigation did not find reason to believe that she met the youth through the course of her work.

Bishop has now been charged with unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, oral copulation with a minor, and molesting a child. Sacramento County Jail records indicate that she was released later in the day on Thursday.
