Fifty-nine-year-old founder and CEO of Haliburton International Foods Charles Ian Charles Schenkel was arrested and charged with six felony counts of prostitution with minors ranging in age from 14 to 17 years old. Subsequent to his arrest was the arrest of 22-year-old Amanda Emilia Perez of Huntington Beach, CA for her role in facilitating the crimes.
According to New Santa Anna Schenkel is charged with:
“One felony count of sexual penetration with a foreign object with a victim under the age of 16, one felony count of oral copulation of a person under the age of 16, one felony count of a lewd act on a child 14 or 15 years old, one felony count of unlawful sex with a minor at least three years younger than the defendant, one felony count of sexual penetration with a foreign object of a victim under the age of 18, and two misdemeanor counts of soliciting prostitution of a minor.”

He was arrested on September 29th and released on a $100,000 bond. If convicted on all six counts, he stands to serves as much as eight years in state prison and another 728 days in county jail.
