    Oakland Police Department Sexual Misconduct Investigation Widened to Include Fourth Officer

    Another Oakland police officer has been placed on administrative leave as a result of an ongoing sexual misconduct investigation, authorities said Monday.

    The Oakland Police Department now has four officers tied to the investigation after last week announcing it was investigating allegations of sexual misconduct with a woman who may have been underage at the time.

    Oakland Police Chief Sean Whent said the officers have been placed on paid administrative leave while the department investigates the allegations.

    The Oakland Police Department has also been rocked by the recent public disclosure that 30-year-old Officer Brendan O'Brien committed suicide last Sept. 25 and that his wife, Irma Huerta-Lopez, committed suicide on June 16, 2014.
