The Bellaire businessman accused of sexually assaulting a 16 year old girl may have just added to his legal woes.

Riku Melartin has a warrant out for his arrest after allegedly sexual assaulting a 16 year old employee at his Crosby based car dealership John Keating Chevrolet.

That’s on top of a violation of a sexually oriented business charge he was slapped with back in May of 2012 in connection with the adult nightclub Babes.

Prosecutors maintained the Harris County club operated without the proper permits needed for a sexually oriented business.

Melartin had already agreed to deferred adjudication of guilt in that case but prosecutors say the latest charges of sexual assault and indecency with a minor could compound the wealthy businessman’s problems!


Note: County records show Melartin once owned popular FM 1960 nightclub Babes!

    Looked at hcad.org and saw Harris County Clerk “assumed names” (d/b/a) had addresses listed that were not his property when he applied for d/b/a at Harris County Clerk Office. Lots of strange business names. Sounds like a money laundering business for drugs, goods counterfeiting, and prostitution.
