One of the men involved in the 2009 gang rape of a Richmond High School student has agreed to serve six years in state prison.

Elvis Torrentes pleaded guilty on Thursday to his involvement in the rape of the 16-year-old girl.

He faced the fewest charges of the six defendants in the case.

Without Thursday's plea deal, Torrentes could have received a maximum of 26 years in prison.
