Keyword: dustin pedroia brother

WOODLAND, Calif.—The older brother of 2008 American League MVP Dustin Pedroia has pleaded guilty to engaging in sex acts with a minor.

Brett Pedroia, 30, admitted Thursday that he engaged in oral copulation four years ago with a boy between the ages of 10 and 14, the Yolo County court clerk's office said. Another charge of oral copulation and two counts of lewd acts were dropped.

Sentencing was scheduled for June 30.

The Yolo County District Attorney's office said it was under a court-imposed gag order and could not discuss the potential penalty Brett Pedroia faces.

Dustin Pedroia is the starting second baseman for the Boston Red Sox. The brothers grew up in Woodland, a small town 20 miles northwest of Sacramento.
