Richmond fires more officers in exploitation sex scandal

Four officers have been fired and five disciplined altogether in the investigation

RICHMOND — Three more Richmond officers will be fired in the wake of allegations that dozens of Bay Area police officers exploited the sex-trafficked teenage daughter of an Oakland police dispatcher.

Mayor Tom Butt confirmed in an email Saturday that city officials have decided to fire three officers who were previously designated to be demoted or suspended. A total of four Richmond officers have lost their jobs as a result of the Bay Area-wide police sex exploitation scandal.
