Top Oakland city officials mishandled allegations of sexual misconduct within the city police department, according to a report released Wednesday by a federally-appointed investigator. The report found the former police chief and other department leaders oversaw a hasty and inadequate internal and criminal investigation into allegations that police officers sexually exploited an underage woman, and made an effort to keep the scandal quiet. The report also faulted the mayor for not adequately reviewing the police department's handling of the case. We'll get the details on the report and hear how Oakland city officials and the police department are responding.
