A secret grand jury investigation of alleged police collusion with a teen-age prostitution ring has instead ensnared a former ranking city official who was accused Tuesday of paying for sex with girls as young as 14. At the same time, newly unsealed indictments show that 12 others, including a San Francisco police officer, also were accused of buying sex from underage girls working out of a brothel near historic Mission Dolores.

A woman who was bound, raped, bludgeoned and dumped into San Francisco Bay gave a matter-of-fact account of how she survived the attack when she testified against a plumber who police believe is a serial rapist. "For a while, I was holding my head. It felt like there was nothing back there. It felt like it was just skin," the 21-year-old woman recalled Thursday, the scars from the October 1997 attack still visible through her long, thick hair. The woman, identified only as Amber M., was working as a prostitute at the time.

Roger Boas, a failed mayoral candidate who was city administrator under two mayors for a decade, pleaded guilty Thursday to charges stemming from having sex with teen-age girls at a brothel. Superior Court Judge Timothy Reardon accepted the surprise plea and set Nov. 17 for sentencing on seven counts of statutory rape. Another 12 counts were dropped in return for the guilty plea, which reportedly allows Boas to avoid prison. Boas issued a brief statement late Thursday expressing "deep remorse."

A longtime Orange County judge who said that a rape victim "didn't put up a fight" and that her sexual assault was only "technical" has been publicly admonished by a state agency that said his remarks seemed outdated, insensitive and possibly biased.

At a sentencing in 2008, Johnson denied a prosecutor's call to impose a 16-year prison term on Metin Gurel, who had been convicted of rape, forcible oral copulation, domestic battery, stalking and making threats against his former live-in girlfriend.

Police, clueless and frustrated over the respected professor's slaying, come up with a single fingerprint at the murder scene. They rush it to the FBI, and within hours the killer is identified. If this sounds too good to be true, it is--for now. It would take weeks, even months, to get the fingerprint through the FBI's cumbersome system.
