Trial set to begin for man accused of luring underage girls for sex, supplying drugs, alcohol

BAKERSFIELD - The trial will begin for an Oildale man accused of luring underage girls to his house to have sex with him and another man.

Anthony Searles-Harris was first arrested in October 2012. Kern County Sheriff’s Deputies said Searles-Harris was throwing parties for underage girls at his home on Oildale Drive.

A 13 and 17-year-old victim told deputies Searles-Harris gave them pills and booze and then had sex with them.
 
The victims also told deputies Searles-Harris forced them to have sex with another man, Randy Miller. Miller paid Searles-Harris, police said.

Randy Miller was sentenced to one year in prison and three years probation after pleading no contest in April to oral copulation with a person under 14.

Searles-Harris is facing 13 felonies and two misdemeanors and his trial will begin when a courtroom becomes available.
