SAN MATEO, CALIFORNIA: San Mateo District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe confirmed that a Menlo Park photographer exploited his access to children to molest a number of them over the course of 30 years. Randolph Michael Haldeman was sentenced to 165 years to life in prison for his heinous acts. The length of his sentence is based on the multiple felonies he was found guilty of.

In a dramatic court hearing Tuesday, Nov 22, Haldeman, 61, was sentenced to 11 separate terms ranging from 15 years to life in prison for sexually abusing children at his Menlo Park home, at the Landera Parish swimming pool, and at St Denis Church. In addition to oral sex and sodomy, Haldeman was accused of arranging meetings with minors to engage in obscene or lascivious behavior. In May 2021, he was charged with 15 of 19 felonies. Haldeman was sentenced to life in prison for causing harm to a large number of victims.

Haldeman claimed to have connections to the Big Brother organization and used to actively hunt at the neighborhood pool for minors throughout the course of his violations that lasted for three decades. Through these organizations, he would make friends with kids and their families, Wagstaffe claimed. A jury found Haldeman guilty of 15 felony counts on May 10, the fourteenth day of his jury trial, including drug-induced oral copulation, sodomy, child molestation, coercive indecent acts with children, and felony contact with a child for a lewd act.

The jury reached a deadlock on two other forcible lewd act counts and found the defendants not guilty on two other counts involving contacting a juvenile for lewd conduct. "This is a long-term predator who was able to get away with it for many years," Wagstaffe said as per Almanac News. "The jury saw right through his lies. We're asking that for this type of predator – and there is no question that he is a predator – serve a long, long sentence to protect the children in our community," he added.
