Stevenson Ranch resident and Grammy-winning music producer Detel was arrested Wednesday on charges of more than a dozen sexual assaults, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department.
Detail, whose real name is 41-year-old Noel Christopher Fisher, is being investigated for 15 sexual assault charges and five additional felony assault-related charges for incidents between 2010 and 2018, traced to July 31 had gone.
Investigators have identified half a dozen victims with varying charges.
One of the victims, a Santa Clarita woman whom The Signal has chosen not to identify, obtained a $ 15 million default judgment against Fisher after she failed to respond to her lawsuit.
Court documents filed in that case accuse the victim, an aspiring model and actress who rented an apartment in the SCV, of raping her on seven separate occasions by Fisher. The victim’s attorney, William Briggs, a partner of Vemble, said the victim issued a temporary restriction order against Fisher and informed law enforcement officials at the time the civil complaint was filed last year. Each of the other five defendants with pending lawsuits has separate lawyers.
“Victims reporting a sexual assault,” said Sgt. Charlie Gates, who led the investigation for the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s Special Victims Unit. “He is in the music industry and all sorts of victims, or have some relationships or tried to break up in the industry.”
Detectives also investigated whether there were more victims than the six who already spoke, Gates said.
“We don’t know how many people would like to come forward or if we have more victims but, usually, this is the tip of the iceberg,” he said, in response to whether detectives were investigating any additional claims.
Since 2005, music producers have been active in the industry and were awarded Grammys in 2015 for Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song. She has worked with artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Ray J and Nikki Minaj, according to A Nixley. Warning posted by Sheriff’s Department.
“On August 5, 2020, Mr. Fisher was arrested by Sheriff Department’s Major Crime Bureau personnel,” read an LASD Nixley alert. “Depending on the nature of the allegations, (Special Victims Bureau) detectives believe that there may be additional potential victims and they are seeking the public’s help in identifying any such victims.”
Fisher was booked at the SCV Sheriff Station on Wednesday and is being held in lieu of $ 6.29 million bail.
