LIBERTY, Texas -- A fourth juvenile boy who is part of a group of 20 males accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting an 11-year-old Southeast Texas girl has pleaded guilty in the case.

The Houston Chronicle reports the 16-year-old boy pleaded guilty during a court hearing Friday in Liberty to a charge of felony aggravated sexual assault of a child.

The boy, whose name is not being released, joins three other juveniles who have also pleaded guilty.

Earlier this week, 21-year-old Isaiah Ross became the first of 14 adults charged in the case to plead guilty.

The 20 individuals were arrested on assault and abuse charges over the alleged 2010 incidents that happened over a period of months in Cleveland, about 45 miles northeast of Houston.
