In a unanimous decision, the Shasta County Board of Supervisors has chosen Undersheriff Eric Magrini to be the new Sheriff, following Tom Bosenko’s announcement last month that he would retire at the end of the year after 13 years as Sheriff and 40 years in law enforcement. The 44-year-old Magrini will complete the term through 2022, when the Sheriff position comes up for re-election. Magrini has been Undersheriff since 2015. He came from the Red Bluff Police department in 2006 and started in patrol for the Sheriff’s Office. He also worked as a detective in major crimes and was promoted to Sergeant in 2012. In 2013 he made Lieutenant. He was made Captain in December of 2014. Magrini was one of three candidates considered by the board for the Sheriff position, along with Tehama County Sheriff’s Sergeant Chad Gibson and John Greene, who had been a Sergeant under Bosenko and was narrowly defeated when he challenged him last year. The board also announced that they’ve chosen a replacement for County Executive Officer Larry Lees, but that name has not been made public.
