A convicted sex offender is scheduled to be arraigned Friday on charges of sexually assaulting a boy and girl he met through a Fullerton church.

Carlos Antonio Chavez, 57, of Anaheim, is accused of using candy to lure the 4-year-old girl and 5-year-old boy into a bathroom, where he allegedly molested them, sometime between 2005 and 2007, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.

The alleged victims, who are now teenagers, confided in relatives in 2014, prosecutors said.

Chavez, who was arrested Wednesday, is charged with four counts of lewd acts on a child younger than 14, with sentence-enhancement allegations og substantial sexual conduct with a child, being a habitual sex offender, having a prior conviction for a sex offense and committing an offense against more than one victim.

He also faces a sentencing enhancement allegation for a prior strike conviction for committing lewd acts on a child younger than 14 in 2001, prosecutors said.
