Dustin Pedroia’s brother has pleaded guilty to having oral sex with a minor.
Brett Pedroia, the older brother of Boston Red Sox star Dustin Pedroia, pleaded guilty today to oral copulation with a minor.
Pedroia was in a Yolo Superior Court this morning, charged with 2 counts of committing lewd acts with a minor and two counts of oral copulation with the minor, according to authorities.
The prosecution dropped the other three charges in the case.
Pedroia, 30, was booked at the Yolo County jail on Jan. 9 for two counts of oral copulation and lewd acts with a child under age 14, but was released on $50,000 bail, says Woodland Police. At a February 9 hearing, he pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The crimes allegedly took place 4 years ago with a boy who was then 8-years-old. Charges were filed only recently when the victim came forward reported the incident to his parents, who then contacted authorities.
Pedroia faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.
