He faces a total of 30 counts, according to the District Attorney's complaint against him.

Jail booking records initially indicated he would be arraigned today. However, a DA spokeswoman confirmed the proceeding had been moved to 1:30 p.m. Friday in Department 62, which is located inside the Sacramento County Main Jail.

Anderson, who declined an interview with The Bee, was released from jail Tuesday night on $750,000 bail.
