Shauna Bishop, a Sacramento County sheriff’s deputy, is scheduled to appear in court next week, facing five felony counts, for the allegedly having sex with a minor.
“Detectives from the Folsom Police Department obtained an arrest warrant Thursday, June 13th, 2019 for Shauna Bishop, 44, of Citrus Heights,” the department wrote on Facebook. “Bishop was accused in early May of having had sexual contact with a minor she knew. After a thorough investigation, detectives found evidence that Bishop had intercourse with a 16-year-old victim. Although Bishop is a deputy sheriff, she did not meet the victim through her job nor did the alleged acts occur while on duty. Detectives do not believe there are additional victims.”
