Alameda County prosecutors on Friday charged two officers embroiled in a widening sexual misconduct scandal that involves a 19-year-old woman and multiple Bay Area law enforcement agencies.
Former Oakland police Officer Leroy Johnson is accused of failing to report child abuse, and former Livermore police Officer Daniel Black is charged with multiple counts of lewd conduct and engaging in prostitution as well as providing a minor with alcohol, according to court filings.
The woman at the center of the scandal, Jasmine Abuslin of Richmond, told authorities that Black picked her up in his motor home and took her to dinner on two occasions in April that both ended in sex.
Black, 49, brought up sex during the first dinner in Berkeley, the woman told authorities. She said Black leaned in and told her “just to be clear, I’m not paying you, but I will buy you dinner,” according to a court declaration filed Friday.
