Orange County prosecutors say 35-year-old Pedro Castillo-Sanchez pleaded guilty to a felony count of lewd acts with a child under 14, as well as a sentencing enhancement for substantial sexual conduct with a child.
He was sentenced on Wednesday. He must also register for life as a sex offender.
A news release says Castillo-Sanchez, who was a family friend, drove the boy to a Santa Ana fast-food restaurant in March and molested the boy in the parking lot. The boy told his mother and Santa Ana police arrested him.
