KCSO Investigates: Scrivner Stabbed Amid Allegations of Child Assault

The Kern County Sheriff’s Office conducted a search of Kern County Supervisor Zack Scrivner’s residence after he was stabbed in response to an accusation of sexually assaulting one of his children.

Sheriff Donny Youngblood held a press conference Thursday to address the incident.

Youngblood said he received a call from Kern County District Attorney Cynthia Zimmer on Tuesday night, expressing concern about her nephew, Scrivner. Youngblood stated that she informed him that he was experiencing a psychotic episode and that he was equipped with a gun.

Deputies arrived at Scrivner’s residence in Tehachapi and discovered that he had been stabbed twice in the upper body, according to Youngblood. He was then brought to the hospital due to his injuries.

During the search of his residence, deputies seized about 30 weapons as well as suspected evidence of an attack and sexual assault.

Throughout the press conference, Youngblood repeatedly stated that he had no idea where Scrivner was.

In a separate press conference on Thursday, Scrivner’s lawyer, H.A. Sala, disputed the sexual assault allegations.

The investigation is underway.
