Officer Terrance Jackson first met the woman known as Celeste Guap when she was a student at De Anza High School and he was a school resource officer, according to the records.
She reached out to Jackson via Facebook in April 2016, the documents show, and after some back-and-forth, he went to Guap’s home while he was on duty early in the morning on April 14. She showed Jackson her breasts and asked him to touch her “under her underwear.”
“That was the stupidest thing I could ever do, but I did,” Jackson told investigators, according to the documents.
Jackson admitted that Guap “touched his penis over his clothing and he reached out and fondled her vagina area, under her clothing,” the report says. “Officer Jackson confirmed he was on-duty at the time.”
Then-City Manager Bill Lindsay overruled the Police Department’s initial recommendation to suspend Jackson for 80 hours in October 2016, finding the discipline was “insufficient to address the very serious and inappropriate behavior that Officer Jackson engaged in with an 18-year-old at-risk youth.”
“I find his lack of judgement, and his predatory behavior toward [Guap] cannot be properly addressed with a suspension,” Lindsay wrote. “The appropriate level of discipline should be termination.”
