HOUSTON—Another man has accepted a plea deal for the gang rape of an 11-year-old girl in Cleveland.

Jamarcus Napper, 20, accepted the deal Tuesday afternoon and was given a 15-year sentence.

Fourteen adults and six juveniles accused of raping the girl were charged. Investigators said the sexual assaults occurred during a nearly three-month span in 2010.

Only two men, Eric McGowen and Jared Cruse, have gone to trial.  Both were convicted and got life in prison.  Counting Napper, 13 have pled out. That leaves five men who still face trial.
