A 28-year-old Santa Ana man was charged Friday with sexually assaulting a 4-year-old relative.
Nelson Eduardo Garcia-Soloranzo was charged with two counts of lewd or lascivious acts with a minor younger than 14, three counts of intercourse with a minor younger than 10 and single counts each of incest and oral copulation on a child younger than 10, according to court records. He also faces a sentencing enhancement for substantial sexual conduct with a minor, according to court records.
The victim, a 4-year-old girl, was sexually assaulted over a period of about a year, according to Deputy District Attorney Kristin Bracic.
The defendant made his first appearance in court Friday, but his arraignment was rescheduled for Jan. 20.
