Two SFPD officers will not face charges related to East Bay police sex scandal

Two San Francisco Police Department officers will not face charges related to the underage prostitution scandal in the East Bay, the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office announced Friday.

News that charges would not be filed was confirmed by SFPD spokesperson Sgt. Michael Andraychak.

The investigation into the San Francisco officers stemmed from former underage sex worker 19-year-old Jasmine Abuslin who alleged she had sex with a number of East Bay police officers when she was 17. She also told several news agencies that she had sexual relationships with three San Francisco police officers, but did not mention names.

The SFPD began investigating the officers after learning of the allegations made by the victim. The San Francisco Examiner previously reported that Abuslin initially said she had consensual sex with Officer Rodger Ponce De Leon, but changed her story after speaking with an Internal Affairs investigator with the San Francisco Police Department, who, according to Abuslin, said that her phone records showed she’d first became involved with Ponce De Leon when she was underage.

The department’s Internal Affairs Criminal Division conducted interviews and served search warrants to determine the level of involvement of the SFPD officers, and while the officers will not face criminal charges there will be an administrative investigation by the SFPD Internal Affairs Division.

“I take these allegations seriously,” Acting SFPD Chief Toney Chaplin said in a statement. “While we’ve completed a criminal investigation, we will continue to investigate and hold members accountable for any violations.”

Police said they will continue to investigate whether any other officers engaged in criminal conduct or violated any department policies.
