Multiple law enforcement agencies say their investigations into an alleged sex scandal involving the woman who calls herself Celeste Guap have either concluded or are close to concluding.

On Thursday, a Livermore police officer resigned. The department says it placed the officer on leave while an investigation was conducted.

In an emailed statement, Chief Michael Harris wrote, "Now that this matter has reached a conclusion, we will move forward and continue to serve with honor and protect with purpose."

Meantime, the Alameda County Sheriff's Office says it cleared four deputies of any criminal wrongdoing.

"We brought Celeste in and did an in-depth interview with her. In her interview, she indicated that none of our people did anything illegal," Alameda Co. Sheriff Greg Ahern said.

Ahern said the department's internal investigation is ongoing. One deputy was cleared of any wrongdoing, one deputy is no longer with the department and two deputies are still being looked at.



On Wednesday, Schaaf said investigators interviewed Guap for more than 20 hours and examined 80,000 pages of social media documents and 28,000 text messages.

As a result, the mayor announced four Oakland police officers are being fired, seven are on unpaid leave and one is being ordered to counseling and training.

"We will hold our officers to nothing but the highest standards of professionalism and integrity," Schaaf said.

"All of these discipline decisions will now be subject to due process and grievance procedures," city administrator Sabrina Landreth said.

Richmond Police Department says its internal investigation is ongoing.
