OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Authorities have decided not to charge one Oakland police officer they had previously said would face prosecution in a sex scandal that has swept through several Northern California law enforcement agencies.

Deputy District Attorney Sabrina Farrell said Thursday that there was insufficient evidence to charge Officer Warit Uttapa. Unlike other officers tied to the scandal, Uttapa was not accused of sexual misconduct with a teenage prostitute, but of illegally accessing a criminal database for the same woman, who is now 19.

The six other Oakland officers named with Uttapa in September have since been charged.
