Big Brother 16’s Devin Shepherd Charged With Burglary

Big Brother 16’s Devin Shepherd Charged With Burglary

Here’s the story of Big Brother 16’s Devin K. Shepherd’s burglary arrest back in September 2009 on burglary charges.  Sit back folks this might take some explaining.

According to court documents, Shepherd walked into a local Onxard, California Fry’s store and lifted some merchandise on September 19, 2009.  When police made contact with Shepherd, he falsely identified himself to police adding yet another charge of giving false information to a police officer (148.9(a) PC).  Subsequent to questioning by police, Shepherd was arrested and charged with misdemeanor burglary (459 PC) and giving false information to a police officer.

Shepherd spent three days in jail, before being released on $10,000 bail.

As the court case made its way through our justice system the charges were eventually reduced to petty theft (484 PC), there are two reasons this might have happened.  It’s common for charges of burglary to be filed when someone is arrested on shoplifting charges, the state must then prove that the defendant, in this case Shepherd, had the intent to enter the store to commit a crime.  The other reason the charge could have been reduced from misdemeanor burglary to petty theft is a plea deal was made between the prosecution and defense.  And, another reason could be due to Shepherd being a first time offender.

During a court hearing on October 28, 2009, the charges were amended and the petty theft (484 PC) charges were added to the criminal complaint, the burglary and giving false information to a police officer charges were dismissed.  Devin pleaded guilty to petty theft and was ordered to serve two days in jail with credit for the time he already served, sentenced to a “Conditional Revocable Release for 36 months” (probation), and ordered to stay away from any Fry’s store.

Devin K Shepherd Probation

Devin was arrested three months later on January 29, 2010 on unknown charges, this may be the DUI arrest that Devin spoke about on the Big Brother 16 live feeds. The big question is why didn’t this subsequent arrest and Devin’s DUI arrest and charges revoke or have a negative effect on his probation? According to the terms of his release he was to immediately report any contact with or arrest by law enforcement, according to court records he complied.

On September 6, 2012 Shepherd petition the courts to get an early probation release, the request was granted September 25, 2012.  On July 5, 2013, a petition was sent to the courts requesting dismissal of the petty theft charges, the court ordered on August 6, 2013, in accordance with the provision of section 1203.4 of the Penal Code Shepherds guilty plea was set aside and a plea of not guilty is entered on petty theft was entered and the charges dismissed.

    Leave the guy alone, won’t you? What is accomplished by dregging up this information? You are despicable.

      If you’re going to put yourself out there on TV, your past will come back to haunt you. Some may look into his past for clues on why he’s acting like a paranoid idiot with no social skills. Of you’re not interested, its best not to click on the story. Same with people digging into Cody past, although he has been acting totally different on the show (well except for his irrational love for Amber which is a main storyline on feeds that again hasn’t been mentioned on the show) But its another area where Devin bug

      Do you watch the feeds, this guy is an aggressive dangerous person. All the girls don’t feel safe around him because he bullies them into doing what he wants them to do. As for showing his PUBLIC records, I don’t see anything wrong with that. If you don’t want to be on the internet, don’t go on a reality show and better yet, don’t steal.

    So, in the end, he was never convicted of anything. That makes him no more guilty than any of us and this is not even a topic worth talking about.

    • Dawn

      He was convicted, released on parole after being convicted and then had his record expunged after being granted early probation termination. His conviction is very real whether it was expunged or not. A person can pretend their bills aren’t due, just like we can pretend his record never existed, but it doesn’t make them any less real.

    • dude

      He pleaded guilty…. That is a conviction..

    He’s a total buffoon. Getting the total idiot edit on the broadcast but it seems to be worse on live feeds/BBAD

  • Mary Contrary

    Devin seems dangerous – he needs to go. Convicted for theft, doesn’t CBS
    screen these people? Oh well, Amber had a bankruptcy back in 2011 so I
    guess no one is perfect.

    • joetheinformed2

      I think CBS loves casting bullies and criminals. They have two bullies this season. One is a racist homophobe who calls the president a muslim monkey. Devin is the other.

  • MC

    He comes across as the type of person that can just snap and I hope he’s gone before he has a chance to.

  • wooooozee

    he’s a black guy hence, he’s bad – he’s a liar, a thief, dangerous and the hgs are “afraid” of him because he can speak in complete sentences and doesn’t put himself second to make folks feel more comfortable. in short, he’s chris rock not simbad!
