19-year-old Jasmine Abuslin was awarded $989,000 from the City of Oakland in a settlement over a police sex scandal.
At the time the sexual encounters occurred Ms. Abuslin was working as an underage prostitute and went by the name Celeste Guap. She is also the daughter of Oakland police dispatcher.
According to The Daily Mail, the scandal came to light after Jasmine began sharing her allegations. To date, several police officers have been fired, and one officer committed suicide.
Oakland City Councilwoman Rebecca Kaplan commented on the settlement.
It is time to pay the settlement agreement to let this young woman get on with her life and her healing, but also for Oakland to step up and change the culture in the police department and change how we recruit and train our officers.
Seven current and former Oakland police officers have been charged for their involvement with the underage girl. Some of the officers gave her cash for sex, while others paid her with Cheetos.
