A California woman was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to having sex with a 16-year-old boy while working as a Sacramento County sheriff’s deputy.
Shauna Bishop, 44, will serve six months in custody and five years of formal probation. She is also required to register as a sex offender, KCRA reported.
Bishop turned herself in back in June of 2019 after the boy’s parent filed a report with police in their hometown of Folsom, California.
Investigators began looking into Bishop’s relationship with the boy in May and police later issued a warrant for her arrest. She had been on paid leave during the investigation and eventually resigned in August 2019 after her arrest, the local CBS affiliate reported.
A five-year veteran at the sheriff’s office, Bishop did not meet the teen through work or have sex with him on duty. Authorities said the crime was not involved in any way with her law enforcement duties.
