HOLLYWOOD, Florida — Four South Florida teens have pleaded guilty to participating in the brutal beating and rape of another teenage girl.

Under agreements with Broward County prosecutors, a 19-year-old man received four years in prison Wednesday while an 18-year-old man received two. Two 17-year-old girls were sentenced to four years each under similar deals last month. They were all sentenced as youthful offenders.

Authorities say the girls invited a then-16-year-old South Broward High School student to a Hollywood home in November 2013 and then began to beat her until she agreed to have sex with 20-year-old Jayvon Woolfork. The two other young men also participated in the attack, parts of which were recorded on a cell phone.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel (http://goo.gl/vp5Vvm ) reports that Woolfork previously rejected a plea deal that would have sent him to prison for 15 years. His next court appearance is scheduled for June 4.
