California guard jailed during sex investigation

The Associated PressJuly 14, 2014 

— A guard at Avenal State Prison is in jail after being arrested in an investigation of sex crimes involving two teenage girls.

Online records show 39-year-old Chad Jerome Shaddon of Kingsburg was booked Monday into Fresno County Jail on suspicion of two offenses.

Kingsburg Police Sgt. Hardin Weaver says Shaddon posted bail after he was arrested Friday on suspicion of misconduct with a 15-year-old girl. He was arrested again Monday after a 14-year-old girl came forward with a similar complaint.

A spokeswoman for the Fresno County District Attorney's Office says formal charges have not been filed. Weaver says Shaddon has an attorney but didn't know who was representing him.

The state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation says Shaddon was put on administrative leave Monday for leaving the prison without permission.
