Bryan William Anast, 45, of Corona, was charged on suspicion of having sex with an 11-year-old female relative between Nov. 1997, and Nov. 2000, according to the DA’s office.

Orange County sheriff’s deputies arrested Anast at Disneyland, where he worked as a machinist fixing rides, after the victim reported the alleged assaults to the sheriff’s department in May 2013.

In a search of Anast’s home, investigators said they found several child pornography videos stored on a computer data device that belonged to him.

Anast was charged with four felony counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child, one felony count of possession and control of child pornography, and a sentencing enhancement allegation for forcible sex crimes.

The charges carried a maximum sentence of 63 years to life in state prison and a mandatory lifetime sex offender registration.

Anyone with additional information or who may have been a victim was asked to contact investigators at 714-347-8794.
