Two Fullerton brothers were convicted Monday on charges of sexually assaulting two girls.
The victims were 3 and 7 when they were repeatedly assaulted by the brothers between May 2010 and August 2011, the Orange County district attorney's office said.
Eduardo Rodriguez, 36, and Cristobal Rodriguez, 38, sexually assaulted the victims together and separately, prosecutors said. The brothers also showed pornographic images to the girls.
At the time, the brothers lived in a garage and assaulted the victims at a nearby location, according to prosecutors. The brothers "groomed the victims and bribed them not to tell anyone about the sexual assault with candy and ice cream," the district attorney's office said in a statement.
The brothers were arrested in August 2011 after one of the girls told a family member what had happened. They each pleaded guilty Monday to multiple felony counts including lewd and lascivious acts on a child under 14 and continuous sexual abuse, prosecutors said.
The brothers are expected to be sentenced on May 19 to lifetime mandatory sex offender registration and 50 years in state prison, according to the district attorney's office.
