DENVER–Denver District Attorney Beth McCann announced that at today’s Denver District Court disposition hearing, her office reached a plea agreement in the case of former FBI Agent Chase Bishop (30-years old). Per the terms of the agreement, Bishop was sentenced to 24 months of supervised probation which he is allowed to complete out of state.
“We believe that this agreement strikes an appropriate balance of seeking justice for the victim and ensuring that this type of incident does not happen again,” said Denver District Attorney Beth McCann.
In exchange for pleading guilty to third-degree assault, Bishop will not serve time in jail for accidentally shooting a man in the leg at a Denver bar last summer.
