Dmitry Shubov, who during the 1990s worked at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom and Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson before founding LegalMatch.com, was arraigned Tuesday on criminal charges filed by a grand jury in Stanislaus County, California.
Shubov, 44, faces 10 felony counts stemming from what authorities allege was a sexual relationship between the entrepreneur and a 14-year-old girl from Modesto, California. Prosecutors claim that Shubov initially met the girl, a minor identified as “Jane Doe” in court documents, on seekingarrangement.com, a dating website that seeks to pair older, wealthier men and women called “Sugar Daddies or Mommas” with younger partners, or “Sugar Babies.”
