The son of an ex-Orange County assistant sheriff gets released from prison Saturday after serving his sentence in a videotaped sex assault case.

Gregory Haidl, 22, is being paroled from Pleasant Valley State Prison in Coalinga after serving part of a six-year sentence. He was given credit for good behavior.

Prosecutors described Haidl as the “maestro” who directed his friends in the assault of an unconscious 16-year-old girl on a pool table.

Haidl and friends Kyle Nachreiner and Keith Spann were convicted in 2005 of several counts of sexual penetration with foreign objects for the 2002 attack at the Haidl home in Corona del Mar.

Haidl is the son of former Assistant Sheriff Don Haidl.

  1. I remember reading about this story in the context of O.C. politics, and feeling so far away from that whole world – I grew up in Claremont but left in ’95. Among the many worst parts is the three year span between the arrest and the conviction – I assume they spent that time free on bail. Ah, Orange County – bringin’ the best traditions of American class politics to the coast!

    1. Other news today: the local art museum is full of stolen stuff that was donated as part of a combination theft/false appraisal/tax writeoff scheme.
      What’s surfer dude for “Raymond Chandler”?

      1. Does it matter? It’s the same old stories of Water And Power that have made and ruined Southern California since the Depression and before.
