During an investigation by sheriff's deputies, which had begun in January, multiple victims came forward saying that they had been assaulted by Haldeman, according to Blankswade.
The last incident reported was in 2015, Blankswade said.
Haldeman was arrested at his home on two counts of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14 years old and was booked into San Mateo County Jail, according to the Sheriff's Office.
He posted $200,000 bail the same day, Blankswade said. He has been given an initial court date of Aug. 26, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.
As of Monday, July 29, the case had yet to be referred to the District Attorney's Office by the Sheriff's Office, Wagstaffe said, but he anticipated receiving it later this week.
On his LinkedIn page, Haldeman describes himself as a "CEO, CMO, Innovator, Mentor." He is chief executive officer and president of Code-N, a Menlo Park-based "next-generation cloud computing company," according to the company's website.
Sheriff's investigators believe that there are more victims who haven't come forward, Blankswade said.
The San Mateo County Sheriff's Office encourages anyone who had contact with Haldeman or whose children had contact with him or know of someone who was victimized to contact Detective Joseph Fava at 650-363-4192 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or Detective Sergeant Joe Cang at 650-363-4008 or email@example.com
