CONTRA COSTA COUNTY (KRON) — The Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office is investigation additional allegations of possible criminal conduct in the Oakland police sex scandal, according to DA spokesperson Bobbi Mauler.

“The Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office has received many requests from the media for comments concerning the scandal involving police officers and sheriff’s deputies from throughout the Bay Area. At the center of these allegations is a young woman who alleges she had had sexual encounters with up to 30 local law enforcement officers, and that some of these encounters occurred when she was 17 years of age,” Mauler said in a press release.

“We’ve been working collaboratively with our law enforcement partners, and we are reviewing that evidence and those allegations. However, we have not yet completed our own investigation into this matter,” Mauler added.

Contra Costa County District Attorney Mark A. Peterson has issued a statement on the possible new allegations.

“It goes without saying that our office will always investigate any alleged sexually assault or human trafficking crimes that occur within our county, and we’re committed to holding anyone who committed such crimes in Contra Costa County accountable for their actions.”

Jasmine Abuslin, the young woman at the center of the sex scandal plaguing several Bay Area law enforcement agencies, is back in Oakland Thursday morning.

The woman, formerly known as Celeste Guap, was released from a Florida jail on Wednesday after accepting a plea deal in an aggravated battery case where she allegedly bit a security guard at a rehab center.
