California prosecutor announcing results of Oakland police sex probe

PAUL ELIAS, Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO (AP) 11/04 — A Northern California district attorney’s office plans to announce the results of an investigation of several police officers implicated in a sex scandal involving the teenage daughter of a dispatcher.

The Contra Costa County District Attorney’s office has scheduled a news conference for 11 a.m. Friday. The office provided no further details and didn’t return phone calls seeking additional comment.

The 19-year-old woman has filed legal actions against several Northern California cities and police departments, saying she was sexually exploited by more than two dozen officers while she worked as a prostitute. The cities have yet to respond to the claims, which are precursors to lawsuits.

The woman’s allegation has roiled the Oakland Police Department, which cycled through three police chiefs in under two weeks before the city administrator took over leadership of the department when the scandal surfaced publicly in June. The scandal surfaced after a federal judge who monitors the long-troubled department ordered internal affairs to look deeper into an officer’s suicide note where he discussed his and colleagues’ relationship with the woman. The officer killed himself in September 2015.

The woman says she is no longer a prostitute and says some of the sex occurred before her 18th birthday. She also said she traded sexual favors for tip-offs of prostitution stings and protection from arrest.

The Associated Press doesn’t generally name victims of sexual crimes.

The Alameda County district attorney last month said some current and former officers will be charged with crimes, including two officers facing counts of having sex with an underage person.

Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley said last month that her investigation uncovered illegal activities in neighboring Contra Costa County and she notified the district attorney there.

The Contra Costa County’s prosecutor scheduled announcement Friday comes a week after officials said they plan to fire four of the 11 Richmond Police Officers facing discipline for their relationships with the woman.

In addition, the San Francisco and San Joaquin district attorneys are investigating incidents the woman said occurred in those counties.
