Charles R. "Chuck" Imbrecht (February 4, 1949 – January 19, 2000) was an American politician from southern California.

Imbrecht was born in 1949. He was an attorney by profession who took an interest in public policy. In 1978, he was elected to the California State Assembly representing the 36th Assembly district. He was one of the more moderate Republicans in that chamber, and he was both well regarded by his colleagues and popular with his constituents. He was reelected to a second term in 1980, but in 1982, he sought election to the California State Senate. After a hard-fought and expensive campaign, he was narrowly defeated by Democratic state Assemblyman Gary K. Hart. He was later appointed Chairman of the state Energy Commission, but resigned amid troubles with alcoholism. He recovered and resumed a successful law practice.

On January 19, 2000, he died of a heart attack at his apartment in Pasedena, California.[1]
