January 23, 2015 – The Orange County District Attorney's Office issued a press release today seeking the help of the public in identifying any minors who were victims of Qayed Murtaza Shareef, the CEO of a publicly traded company based in Irvine. Today Shareef was charged with the following:

  • 30 felony counts of lewd acts with a child under 14
  • 1 felony count of using a minor for sex acts
  • 1 felony count of distributing pornography to a minor

Shareef also faces sentencing enhancement for substantial sexual conduct with a child under 14 years old and committing lewd acts upon multiple victims. His bail is set at $2 million and arraignment is scheduled for this afternoon at Central Jail in Santa Ana, CA.
