An 18-year-old from California has claimed she bedded 31 police officers from seven different departments.
Celeste Guap, a teen sex worker, says she traded her time with officers for police protection and that some of the men first slept with her when she was just 16, according to KPIX news.
Initially, the scandal looked limited to Oakland Police Department in Calornia, but Guap told news station KPIX 5 that she had sex with officers from other departments too.
The 18-year-old claimed she slept with 14 from officers from Oakland, five from Richmond and three from San Francisco. She also admitted bedding four from Alameda County, three from Contra Costy County, and one each from Stockton and Livermore – all Californian departments.
Guap, who is 18 and lives in Richmond, California, according to the Daily Star, started revealing details on Facebook suggesting she had illicit encounters with officers, calling the relationships ‘harmless’ and insisting that she did not ‘snitch’ on anyone.
Previously, Guap said the only officer she slept with while she was underage was no longer in the job, but she’s now admitted there were others. The teen claims to have slept with three officers while under the age of consent – all from Oakland Police Department.
To make matters worse, photos of texts between Guap and the officers have leaked, showing them warning the teen of undercover operations:
Guap told KPIX: “I thought ‘wow,’ [the officers] cared about me. Thinking back at it, I do see myself as a victim because I do feel like I was taken advantage of … but, personally, I don’t have any bad feelings toward them.”
There are currently investigations underway in two departments, with Oakland’s chief officer, Sean Whent, having resigned since the allegations.
If the allegations are true, they’re extremely worrying.
