Editor's note: Reports say Oakland, Calif., acting police chief Paul Figueroa, who has been reported by numerous Oakland media to have stepped down, assumed the position earlier this week to replace Interim Chief Ben Farrow. Farrow was removed from his position earlier this week and just five days after he filled the vacancy following Chief Sean Whent's departure, NBC Bay Area reports. The changes come amidst a growing sex scandal involving an 18-year-old prostitute who said she has had sex with as many as 28 officers across agencies, according to NBC Bay Area. We will continue to look for confirmation and will post more information as soon as it comes. - Imana
