Teen at the Center of Oakland Police Sex Scandal is Suing City for $66 Million
Celeste Guap, a pseudonym used for the 19-year-old, is suing the Oakland police department because “members treated her as a sex slave.”
“A new lawsuit filed against the City of Oakland Friday claimed the sex scandal — in which seven officers face criminal charges including sex crimes and failure to report sexual misconduct — was an act of ‘modern day slavery.’”
On Friday, two members of the sex trafficking ring were formally charged. If the officers are convicted, they will each face a maximum sentence of one year. In addition, according to Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley, five more current or former officers will be charged for being involved in the scandal.
It is disgusting how police have been complicit in the sex trafficking of an underage woman. We can only hope that justice is served.
