Doctor Sentenced To 20 Years For Underage Sex

A Redding doctor has been sentenced to prison after admitting to having sex with underage boys. Doctor Benjamin Shettell was a co-owner of Fusion Health Care and Silhouette Medspa. Shettell’s victims ranged in age from 17 all the way down to 6-years-old, and some of them were his patients. The abuse was reported to Redding Police by one of Shettell’s employees last June. Search warrants were then served at Doctor Shettell’s home, his offices, and a storage unit, leading to the discovery of child pornography. Shettell made a plea deal and Wednesday he entered guilty pleas to 24 counts of oral copulation with a minor, two counts of using a minor as a model for child pornography and one count of committing a lewd act on a child. He was sentenced to 20 years 4 months in state prison.
