Northern California officers face discipline in sex scandal
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- A Northern California police department said it was disciplining several officers implicated in a sex scandal with a teen who says she worked as a prostitute.
The Richmond Police announced Monday night that it had investigated 11 current and former officers and would be attempting to fire some of them while recommending counseling for others. The chief didn't specify how many officers faced discipline, noting that some of those investigated were cleared of wrongdoing.
The announcement in Richmond comes less than a week after the Alameda County district attorney said she plans to charge seven officers from three other agencies with sex crimes and unauthorized access of criminal databases.
The teen at the center of the scandal is in a Florida jail after allegedly biting a drug treatment facility security guard.
