Lauderdale, Florida, en route to an inpatient drug-rehabilitation facility. When she landed in Florida, two strangers greeted her in the airport terminal holding a paper with her name written on it. She got into their car and the group drove for two hours in complete silence through Boca Raton and West Palm Beach, before reaching the Wellness Counseling and Detoxification center in Stuart, Bonner said. Repeated requests to call home were also denied, Bonner said.
After three tumultuous days, the stay abruptly ended when the young woman bit a security guard after she tried to leave the facility.
She was taken to jail, where she stayed until her charge was reduced to a misdemeanor. She pleaded no contest on Wednesday and was released to her attorneys and her father. Bonner said the victim was not a security guard, as alleged in court charges, but rather a driver for the facility. He said the woman will undergo tests to see what the substance was. The Thursday morning news conference before reporters was the first public comments since Bonner and co-counsel Price returned from Florida with the young woman, who had served 17 days in jail.
This news organization is not naming her because she is the victim of sex abuse. She did not attend the news gathering, and her attorneys say she no longer wishes to use the alias used by many media outlets in recent months to identify her. Attempts to reach Sgt. Matthew Stonebreaker, who Bonner said organized the trip to Florida, and who the teen said drove her to the airport, were unsuccessful Thursday.
Richmond police Assistant Chief Bisa French said Bonner and Price were taking advantage of the fact that her department could not comment on the ongoing criminal investigation. The woman has said she had sex with about 30 Bay Area police officers, including some when she was underage.
None of those officers are facing criminal charges, but Richmond officials said some will be disciplined or terminated for their involvement in the scandal. Four of the seven have already reed or retired.
She said Contra Costa prosecutors reached out to her recently asking to speak to the teen because they wanted to investigate. The attorneys plan on filing lawsuits on behalf of the woman against each city and county implicated in the scandal, but on Thursday afternoon no claims — the precursor to a lawsuit — were filed in Richmond,Oakland or Livermore, city officials said.
