WOODLAND, Calif. (AP) - The brother of Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia will serve time in jail after being convicted of child molestation charges.

Prosecutors say Brett Pedroia, 30, was sentenced to one year in jail by a Yolo County judge Wednesday after pleading guilty in April to one count of oral copulation with a minor.

Prosecutors were seeking a sentence of eight years in prison.

Yolo County Deputy District Attorney Tiffany Susz says Pedroia's sentence includes a suspended six-year prison term, with eight years' probation. If he violates the terms of his probation, Susz says Pedroia will have to serve the prison term.

The brothers grew up in Woodland, a small town outside Sacramento.
