She also claimed she had sex with four officers before she turned 18 and sometimes traded sex for protection from arrest or tip offs to planned prostitution stings.
Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf says the city’s police department started dismissal
proceedings against four officers, but noted some may have previously left the department. The department earlier announced that two officers implicated in the scandal previously resigned. A third killed himself last year.

In addition, seven officers will serve a range of unpaid suspensions before being allowed to return to duty. Another officer will be required to attend training classes.
‘I am deeply sorry for the harm this scandal has caused,’ Schaaf said.
Schaaf declined to identify the officers being disciplined. It’s unclear if any of the officers were represented by lawyers. The officers’ union said previously it wasn’t representing most of the implicated officers because the alleged misconduct occurred while they were off duty.

Police chief Paul Figueroa stepped down in June after only two days on the job, following predecessor Ben Fairow, who had been fired after just six days. Fairow himself had been Oakland Police chief Sean Whent, resigned the week the story broke. He had been accused of sweeping the scandal under the rug, though he was aware of it, which exacerbated several existing cases of misconduct. He was succeeded by Deputy Chief Ben Fairow. Chief Fairow was fired just six days into the job. Fairow’s successor, Police chief Paul Figueroa stepped down in June after only two days on the job, as well.

Chief Fairow had said at the time that the investigation into possible sexual misconduct with a minor stemmed from the suicide of an officer. Officer, who had just lost his wife in a controversial shooting death, a few months earlier had fatally shot himself just hours after ‘his friend’ Celeste started revealing details of the relationships with members of law enforcement on Facebook last September. The teen sex worker has not named the officers she claims to have slept with, other than implying a relationship with the dead O’Brien on Facebook

Abuslin, whose mother works as a dispatcher at the Oakland Police Department, hasn’t named the officers she claims to have slept with. She claims that only three officers paid her after their encounters, and recalls having up to ten trysts with a single cop.
Her name surfaced after Brendan O’Brien committed suicide. The teen girl said O’Brien
slept with her when she was 17. He then committed suicide in September 2015, after he ignored her texts and she sent a message about their affair to one of his superiors.
She has consistently claimed that she had sex with more than 30 Bay Area cops from at least seven different law enforcement agencies, including some when she was underage. Currently, at least five Bay Area police agencies still have internal personnel investigations pending.

The teen had been sent to the voluntary rehab facility in Florida by officers in California in order to receive treatment for heroin and sex addiction.Richmond police department, one of the seven Bay Area police departments name in the scandal, offered the remedial program to the teen and she has taken them up on the offer. However, on August 29,she went through a meltdown and had a violent episode in rehab, attacking staff and officers during a session at the Treasure Coast Recovery Center, a voluntary treatment center in Florida. Police say the teen, who joined the center on August 26 to be treated for heroin and sex addiction, ran into the street, pulled up her shirt and exposed herself to motorists.

When she was put into a police car she began hitting her head on the window and then tried to solicit sex, police say. She was later pictured smiling in her police mugshot while wearing a protective police vest. After her violent episode at the Florida rehab facility, Abuslin was held at the St. Martin County jail on $300,000 bail.
According to ABC 7, which spoke to Absulin before her treatment, she was told to go to the center by California police who told her to ‘treat it like paid vacation.’
She also claimed that she had been in contact with a Miami pimp who had offered to come and collect her if things did not go well in rehab.
Sarai Smith-Mazariegos, who works with sex trafficking survivors in Oakland,went on to say at the time: “It’s not that she’s a bad person or she’s horrible. It’s the fact that she’s dealing with a lot of trauma. She doesn’t even understand her own victimization.”
Absulin’s claims are still being investigated and detectives have not ruled out statutory rape charges. Six Richmond police officers and several others working for other law enforcement agencies have also been implicated.
