Former Craven County SRO arrested on sex crime charges involving student

A former Craven County Sheriff’s Office deputy who worked as a school resource officer (SRO) has been arrested and charged with sex crimes involving a teen student.



Isaiah Bradley, age 24, was arrested on April 8 on the charges of sex act with a student and indecent liberties with a student. Both crimes are felonies.

Bradley was originally released under a $50,000 bond.  His bond was doubled to $100,000 after his first court appearance this week.

No mugshot has been provided, however, his hearing was streamed by multiple news outlets. (Right: Screenshot of Bradley at his hearing.)

Records show Bradley was released on April 10 with the notes “unsupervised custody” with “electronic monitoring” on the release record.

At his hearing this week, he was instructed to have no contact with the victim, not be around anyone under 18 without an adult present or the consent of parents, stay off of school properties, and not use social media.

According to the Craven County Sheriff’s Office, Bradley last worked as a deputy on March 24. He had been a deputy for a little over two years and he was fired on March 25.

According to various reports, the NC State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) took over the case following the firing. An investigation was launched by the SBI and the local district attorney which resulted in Bradley’s arrest.

A spokesperson for the Craven Sheriff’s Office indicated the alleged crimes involved a 16-year-old victim and occurred while Bradley was an SRO at New Bern High School.

Craven County Schools has not yet issued a statement.
