California prosecutors charge 7 officers in sex scandal

Prosecutors in the San Francisco Bay Area are preparing to discuss a sexual misconduct case of officers in the Oakland Police Department.

Four Oakland police officers have been fired following a almost year-long investigation into a sex abuse scandal, City Administrator Sabrina Landreth said.

Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O'Malley said she was waiting to formally file charges until the teen could be returned to California from Florida, where she has been jailed in an assault case.

Those facing charges include a former Livermore police officer, five former and current Oakland police officers and one former Contra Costa County sheriff's deputy, reports CBS San Francisco. Some of the sexual interactions happened when she was underage, she said, and the woman also claimed she had sex with some officers in exchange for information about planned prostitution raids.

The Associated Press generally doesn't identify sex crimes victims.

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and City Administrator Sabrina Landreth have announced the conclusion of their investigation into the sex scandal that rocked the Oakland Police Department (OPD).

Two other officers involved in the scandal have since resigned, with a third committing suicide in 2015 before KRON broke the story. In some cases Guap said she was still underage when she was alleged to have had sex with some officers.

In a press release, the TBOC commented, in part: "In the three months since the public learned of the Bay Area-wide sexual exploitation and misconduct by law enforcement, no charges have been brought against any officers or staff involved in the commission or cover-up of crimes and departmental policy violations".

The scandal included members of four other East Bay law enforcement agencies were also accused of either having sex with the woman or engaging in other inappropriate conduct with her.

The Oakland Police Department has been fraught with problems, including the resignation of three police chiefs in quick succession after news of the scandal involving a teenage sex worker and police officers emerged in local media in June.

Investigators are looking into whether the law enforcement officers had sexual relationships with Guap. Harris says the officer was put on administrative leave June 14 and resigned after learning the results of the investigation.

The Oakland Police Department is no stranger to scandal.

An eighth officer has been recommended for counseling and will receive training for "bringing disrepute" to the department, city officials said.

As if the sex scandal wasn't enough, the Oakland department was also entrenched in a racist text and email scandal that was unearthed around the same time.

Investigators spent almost a year digging through 28,000 text messages and thousands of social media pages ever since Guap was named in an officer's suicide note last year.

Most of the officers will be suspended without pay and will return to the force.

The young woman, with the assistance of Richmond police, was taken to a Florida rehab facility on August 26 to overcome a drug addiction.

Guap told The Chronicle a few of the officers paid her, while some of the others tipped her to antiprostitution stings or ran names of people she was curious about through confidential databases.
