A veteran Northern California police officer is accused of raping a woman at a hotel after escorting her there while he was on duty, authorities said Tuesday.
The company that owns an oil platform that caught fire in the Gulf of Mexico has vowed to continue searching for a second missing worker after a body was recovered in the waters near the site.
Prosecutor Carlos Vega says the woman never requested leniency for the report, and received a typical sentence for a first-time DUI offender after pleadeding no contest.
The six-year veteran officer surrendered to police the same day, then posted $100,000 bail, Deputy District Attorney Carlos Vega said Tuesday.
