SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP)
Prosecutors say a former Disneyland employee faces more than 55 years in prison for molesting four young girls.
The Orange County Register reports that 46-year-old Bryan William Anast pleaded guilty Monday to nine felony counts including lewd acts on a child and possession of child pornography.
Prosecutors say the victims were three relatives and a family friend and that he touched all of them sexually with his hands. Anast lives in Corona and worked at Disneyland as a ride machinist.
Prosecutors say when they investigated Anast’s home, they found 48,000 photos and 400 videos of child pornography.
Investigators say Anast told them he is sexually attracted to girls between the ages of 8 and 10 and that he downloaded pornography to control his urges.
