    Two Oakland Police Officers Resign Amid Sexual Misconduct Investigation

    Two out of the four Oakland Police Department officers that were placed on administrative lead amid an investigation into a misconduct case have resigned.

    The Oakland Police Department is still investigating allegations of sexual misconduct with a woman who may have been underage at the time.

    Oakland Police Chief Sean Whent said the officers were 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 September and that his wife, Irma Huerta-Lopez, committed suicide on June 16, 2014.
