A Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputy has been accused of sexual misconduct with a minor, officials say.
Shauna Bishop, a 5-year veteran of the department, was placed on paid administrative leave last week pending the results of a criminal investigation into the accusations, according to Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Sgt. Tess Deterding.
The Folsom Police Department is carrying out the investigation, she said.
“We’re in complete cooperation with the Folsom Police Department,” Deterding said. “But we are really letting them handle the investigation as they see fit.”
Deterding said the sheriff’s office will take administrative action when the results of the police department’s “complete and thorough” investigation are in.
