Jason Harry Bishop - Repeat Sex Offender

A 42-year-old registered sex offender was arrested Tuesday when Monterey County sheriff's deputies found child pornography at his Salinas home during a sex offender sweep, the sheriff's office reported.

Jason Harry Bishop was arrested for possession of child pornography and for violating his parole for a previous conviction of annoying or molesting children, Detective Sgt. Archie Warren said.

He was arrested during a sweep by members of the sheriff's Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement Team and California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation agents.

The sweep focused on registered sex offenders living in Salinas, Warren said. During such sweeps, if the offender is on parole, officers will often search the offender's home to ensure he or she is complying with the parole terms.

Bishop will be arraigned later this week in Monterey County.
