Two Fullerton brothers charged with sexually molesting a 3-year-old girl and 7-year-old girl on repeated occasions are expected to be arraigned Thursday in the Central Jail in Santa Ana.

The girls were allegedly molested in a converted garage, at times separately by the brothers and on other occasions when the two men were together, the Orange County district attorney's office said.

The girls were also shown pornographic images by the brothers, who are charged with giving the children  ice cream and candy so that they wouldn't tell anyone, according to the district attorney's office.

Cristobal Ortiz Rodriguez, 35, and Eduardo Ortiz Rodriguez, 33, are charged with multiple felony counts, including lewd acts on a child, sexual penetration of a child and a sentencing enhancement allegation of committing a sexual crime against more than one victim. 

The molestation allegedly occurred between May 2010 and August 2011.
