A man charged with participating in a gang rape of a 16-year-old girl outside her Richmond High School homecoming dance pleaded guilty Thursday in connection with the attack in exchange for a six-year prison sentence, a prosecutor said.
Elvis Torrentes, 26, entered a plea to sexual penetration of an intoxicated person before Judge Barbara Zuniga of Contra Costa County Superior Court in Martinez.
Torrentes will serve six years in prison, said prosecutor Harold Jewett.
Four other men have been convicted for their roles in the 2009 attack.
In August, Jose Montano, 22, of Richmond and Marcelles Peter, 20, of Pinole were sentenced to 33 years to life and 29 years to life in prison, respectively, after juries convicted them of forcible rape while acting in concert with others, a forcible act of sexual penetration in concert and forcible oral copulation in concert.
