Supervisory board meets for first time since Zack Scrivner allegations

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — The Kern County Board of Supervisors met for the first time Tuesday since allegations that Zack Scrivner sexually assaulted a child first surfaced.

Scrivner’s name was still on the agenda at the 9 a.m. meeting. He was not arrested and no charges were brought against him. Scrivner’s location is also not known.


According to Sheriff Youngblood, he received a call from Prosecutor Cynthia Zimmer two weeks ago. She told the sheriff that her nephew, Zack Scrivner, was armed and suicidal. Youngblood then immediately sent deputies to Scrivner’s home in Tehachapi.

Then deputies arrived and learned that Scrivner had been stabbed following allegations that he had sexually assaulted a child.

The discovery led detectives to execute a search warrant for stabbing and sexual assault. Authorities seized 30 firearms, electronic devices including his phone, possible evidence of the stabbing and sexual assault, and forensic evidence.

17 News learned last week that Scrivner’s wife, Christina Scrivner, asked a judge to keep her ex-husband away from their four children.

However, Christina’s accusations against Zack are completely censored. A family court hearing for the Scrivners is scheduled for later this month.
