RICHMOND, Calif. (AP) — A San Francisco Bay Area city is firing three more police officers implicated in a sex scandal involving a teenage girl.

Richmond City Manager Bill Lindsay said Sunday he has determined four of the 11 officers identified in the investigation should be fired. City officials previously said they were seeking to fire one officer.

The officers’ names were not released.

The 19-year-old woman at the center of the scandal says she worked as a prostitute and exchanged sex with officers for money or protection from arrest. She says she has had sex with more than two dozen Northern California officers, several before she turned 18.

The Associated Press generally doesn’t identify victims of sex crimes.

Alameda County prosecutors have charged five current and former officers from three different agencies in the case.
