More charges dropped against child molesting Oakland cops

Although Judge Kevin Murphy called former Oakland police officer Ryan Walterhouse a “bad cop,” he dismissed conspiracy and bribery charges related to conduct with a prostitute.

Walterhouse faced two felony counts of conspiracy to obstruct justice after he was accused of tipping off a prostitute to an undercover FBI sting operation on International Boulevard on Oct. 13-14, 2016. The stings included finding suspects and victims of child sex-trafficking.

But the Alameda County Superior Court judge on Monday did not hold him to those charges, stating that although he agreed evidence supports that Walterhouse gave her the information, there was never a conspiracy agreement between the two; she never asked what was in it for her.
