SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Two Orange County brothers have pleaded guilty to repeatedly molesting 3- and 7-year-old neighbor girls who were bribed to keep quiet with candy and ice cream.

Prosecutors say 38-year-old Cristobal Ortiz Rodriguez and 36-year-old Eduardo Ortiz Rodriguez pleaded guilty Monday to about 15 sex abuse counts apiece, including lewd and lascivious acts on a child.

The brothers are expected to be sentenced to 50 years apiece in prison when they're sentenced in May and must register for life as sex offenders.

Investigators say the girls were molested in a converted Fullerton garage where the brothers lived.

Prosecutors said the girls were shown pornographic images as the brothers had sex with them.

One of the girls told a family member about the assaults and the brothers were arrested in 2011.
