A transient sex offender was convicted and sentenced Tuesday to two years in state prison for sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl as she tried to exit a bus in Anaheim.

Curtis Michael Regulus, 40, pleaded guilty in Orange County Superior Court to two felony charges of lewd acts upon a child and one felony count of assault with the intent to commit a sexual offense.

At the time of the crimes, Regulus was a transient registered sex offender known to frequent the Newport Beach and Costa Mesa areas.

The girl was assaulted on the bus about 4 p.m. on June 19, 2010. After she exited the bus, Regulus assaulted her again at a nearby intersection, where the girl was waiting for a signal to change so she could cross the street.
