Deputy Sheriff Pleads Guilty to Having Sex with Teen Son of Ex-Boyfriend
A Sacramento County sheriff’s deputy pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor — the 16-year-old son of her ex-boyfriend.
Shauna Bishop, 46, will be required to register as a sex offender, the Sacramento County district attorney’s office said in announcing the plea.
Four other charges were dropped: three others of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, as well as a misdemeanor count of annoying or molesting a child.
Bishop was arrested in June 2019, several weeks after she spent the night with the boy at his mother’s house.
At the time of that sleepover, the boy’s father — who also worked for the sheriff’s department — had recently ended a yearlong relationship with Bishop. He had told his ex-wife that he was uncomfortable with the way Bishop behaved around their teenage son. Later, court documents revealed specific information: She had walked around naked while the boy was in their home.
His ex-wife, however, established a friendship with Bishop, and on April 28, 2019, she invited the deputy to her home to participate in a discussion with the boy about his drinking and marijuana use, court documents said.
After the talk, Bishop and the mother went to sleep in the mother’s bedroom. Both said they took the sleep drug Ambien. The mother said Bishop remained in bed the following morning until the boy went to school, and then she left around 9:30 a.m.
Two weeks later, the victim’s 19-year-old sister, who was home from college, revealed to her mother that the boy told her he had sex with Bishop that night. The mother then called the Folsom police.
During the investigation, the police had the mother call Bishop and ask her about that night. Bishop eventually admitted that — though she claimed she had no memory of the sex — the boy had told her in a phone call the following day that they had intercourse and oral sex in his room while his mother was asleep.
“I thought it was a dream. I’ve been so sick over it,” Bishop told the mother.
In statements to the boy as well as to investigators, she suggested she had been under the influence of the Ambien.
She also reportedly told the boy that the encounter had been prompted by sex videos she had watched. Police investigators reportedly found on her phone several searches around the time of the incident for “stepmom/stepson related pornographic videos.”
Bishop, who has been with the Sacramento sheriff’s office for five years, has been on administrative leave. Court records indicate she has two daughters, ages 17 and 21.
She is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 23.
