Rapist, Predator, Child Molester

O.C. Man Sentenced For Rape, Child MolestationFULLERTON (CBS) ― A Westminster man was sentenced on Friday to 41 years to life in prison for kidnapping and attempting to rape one woman, attacking another woman after returning with her from a dance club and molesting two children, prosecutors said.

Anthony Ray Willis, 37, pleaded guilty on Dec. 5 to the felony counts of kidnapping to commit a sexual offense, four counts of lewd acts on a child under 14, assault with the intent to commit a sexual offense and the sentencing enhancement of committing crimes against more than one victim, said Farrah Emami of the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. On Jan. 14, 2006, Willis came upon a woman and her boyfriend who had fallen asleep in the car outside a Fullerton bar, Emami said.

When he knocked on the window to get the woman’s attention, he identified himself as a police officer and told her to get out of the car and show identification.When he told her to accompany him to his car to run her license, she tried to go back to the car to tell her boyfriend what was happening, but Willis put her in a headlock and pushed her inside a van, Emami said.
Willis drove to Trabuco Canyon, disrobed the victim and attempted to rape her but the woman saw headlights and was able to honk the horn of the van, Emami said.When the vehicle stopped, the woman got away and ran naked through woods, while he fled the van and eventually went to Tennessee where he was arrested and waived extradition for return to Orange County, Emami said.Meanwhile, the woman spent the night naked in the woods before being found by police, Emami said.

The following month, police began an investigation regarding the molestation of a 6-year-old girl and a 4-year-old girl between March 23, 2004 and Jan. 1, 2006, Emami said. Willis, who knew the girls through their parents, forced the sisters to engage in sexual conduct including oral copulation, rape and sodomy.The older girl told her grandmother who notified police, Emami said.

The assault on the other woman happened on March 30, 2002, Emami said.
The woman, her sister and Willis went to a dance club. While returning home, Willis stopped his car and all three got out.After a few moments, came out of the shadows and tried to pull one woman toward a building, ordering her to remove her stockings, and then trying to pull them off when she refused, Emami said.

The woman began to scream and her sister found her. The two tried to escape from Willis in his car, but they crashed through a fence, Emami said.Willis caught up and began pounding on the hood of the car but the women got out and flagged down a driver who called police. Willis fled the scene, Emami said.
