Man Held for Underage Sex Offense

Police arrested a Costa Mesa man for suspicion of statutory rape on Friday, Oct. 7, six months after a sexual encounter with a 17-year-old Laguna Beach girl, police said.

Detectives arrested Michael Sheridan, 23, in Costa Mesa’s Heller Park at 2:47 p.m. where he and a group were engaged in live action role-playing simulating renaissance era combat, Rahaeuser said. His bail was set at $20,000.

After he was taken into custody, Sheridan, a welder, allegedly admitted to investigators he had a sexual encounter with a female he knew to be underage, Rahaeuser said.
