OAKLAND (CBS SF) – Alameda County DA Nancy O’Malley is expected to announce Friday whether any East Bay law enforcement officers involved in a notorious sex scandal will face criminal charges.
This centers around a 19 year old sex worker who calls herself Celeste Guap, who claims she slept with dozens of police officers, some while she was underage. Some of the encounters included the exchange of money, others for information regarding prostitution stings.
This week, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf announced that the department fired four officers, suspended seven others and disciplined one officer in connection to the scandal. Two other implicated Oakland officers previously resigned, while a third officer killed himself.
On Thursday, Livermore police announced that one of their officers quit last week after an internal investigation into his involvement. Officers with the Richmond Police Department have also been linked to the case.
While O’Malley has long been a champion against underage human trafficking, even an investigator in her own department was dismissed for having inappropriate text messaging with Guap.
