A Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputy was arrested Thursday on suspicion of having sex with a minor, police said.
Shauna Bishop, 44, was accused in early May of having sexual contact with a minor she knew, according to police. She was placed on paid administrative leave while investigators reviewed the allegations against her.
After an investigation, detectives found evidence that the allegations were true and served a warrant for her arrest on charges of sex with a minor, oral copulation with a minor and molesting a child, KTLA News reports.
The detectives said Bishop did not meet the 16-year-old victim through her job and the alleged actions did not happen while she was at work. Detectives do not believe there are other victims.
Bishop was booked into the Sacramento County Jail Thursday, but was later released. Bishop is a 5-year veteran of the department.
