Oakland plans to let sex-perv cops off the hook

The Oakland police supervisors who oversaw the bungled investigation into the department’s scandal involving a sexually exploited teenage girl may never come up on administrative charges.

At issue are repeated delays in the city and federal court investigations into the matter, and their possible effect on the one-year statute of limitations for disciplining police for alleged misconduct under the state Peace Officers Bill of Rights.

New Police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick — who would have a big say over possible discipline for any Police Department investigators who fouled up, is only now going through the case in detail.

Meanwhile, the one-year clock on filing any disciplinary charges is ticking. Loudly.
