CA Police Underage Sex Scandal Involves 28 Officers, 5 Departments

The California teen at the center of a multi-agency underage sex scandal is finally speaking out about the officer who took her from a pimp and turned her into a [__badge bunny__](http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=badge%20bunny) for 28 cops across five different police departments.

The fallout has caused two officer suicides.

Fourteen Oakland cops have resigned already.

“I just want everyone to know that I didn’t do this on purpose. I didn’t want to ruin these officers lives,” Celeste Guap told [__CNN__](http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/24/us/oakland-police-scandals/index.html), speaking out about the sex scandal involving her.

Guap was a victim of child sex trafficking.

> How she met Officer Brendan O’Brien in the first place is disturbing in and of it itself. Guap says she was working the streets as a prostitute. She says she was underage at the time, which would legally make her a victim of child sex trafficking. A pimp was chasing her down a street one day in Oakland when she saw O’Brien. “He saved me when I was 17,” Guap told [__CNN__](http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/24/us/oakland-police-scandals/index.html) in a phone conversation.
> “Instead of taking me to jail, we just kind of started something there, you know.”

The teenage prostitute initially lied to investigators “because she didn’t want any drama” but they seized her phone, which showed a bigger scandal.

That scandal has now claimed the careers of Chief Sean Whent and another high ranking official, along with 12 other officers.

It is also the departments fourth Chief in less than three weeks and a new civilian oversight position, a position community activists have been calling for nearly two decades.

The Oakland Police Department internal investigation was triggered after the suicide of Officer Brendan O’Brien.

Sadly, Guap’s mother had no clue, and she works as a dispatcher at Oakland PD.

Unusually, O’Brien’s wife committed suicide squeezing off two rounds from a gun 15 months prior.

O’Brien left a suicide note which lead investigators to suspect an improper relationship with the underage sex worker and included multiple other officers within the department.

In the agreement with federal authorities Oakland was required to report the internal investigation to the federal monitor and compliance director.

However, no one ever notified the federal monitor regarding the investigation into the relationship O’Brien had with the teenage prostitute.

The investigation into the suicide of Oakland Police Officer, Brendan O’Brien, started an internal investigation into an ever growing sex scandal, involving an underage sex worker and members of several police departments.

It has become obvious it is no longer [__“a few bad apples” but the whole barrel that has gone bad__](https://photographyisnotacrime.com/2015/06/02/how-fast-can-de-policing-save-american-lives/).

That’s why Oakland’s Mayor installed civilian oversight in her department – which could become a national model to reform broken law enforcement agencies – with the power and influence to hold officers accountable by firing them.

Also preventing police from resigning to avoid an investigation would go a long way towards punishing law breaking cops.

The department settled with 119 complainants for nearly $11 million in what is known as “the Oakland Riders”, were multiple officers were involved in falsely arresting and beating suspected drug dealers.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
