SANTA ANA, Calif. – A fugitive was arraigned today on charges of raping and molesting a 14-year-old girl in her home. Anthony Allen Tealer, 44, Brea, is charged with one felony count of forcible rape, one felony count of committing lewd acts upon a child, and sentencing enhancement allegations for a prior strike conviction for assault with a deadly weapon in San Diego County in 2003 and not remaining free from custody for a period of five years. If convicted, Tealer faces a maximum sentence of 21years in state prison. Tealer is being held on $250,000 bail and is scheduled for pre-trial, Dec. 11, 2015, at 8:30 a.m. in Department N-12, North Justice Center, Fullerton.
At the time of the crime, the defendant lived with his girlfriend in Brea.
Around Feb. 2, 2009, Tealer is accused of committing lewd acts on 14-year-old Jane Doe, a relative of the defendant’s girlfriend, in their residence in Brea. The defendant is also accused of raping Jane Doe in a bedroom inside of the residence while the defendant’s girlfriend and another relative were in the home.
Jane Doe reported the crime to a relative, who then contacted the Brea Police Department (BPD). The defendant is accused of fleeing to Killeen, Texas after the crime occurred. BPD officers, who investigated this case, and law enforcement agents in Texas located and arrested the defendant on Aug. 21, 2015. Tealer was subsequently transported back to Orange County.
Deputy District Attorney Rebecca Reed of the Sexual Assault Unit is prosecuting this case.
