HOUSTON (AP) - A Houston youth whose 2010 videotaped beating by police during a break-in investigation led to four officers fired has pleaded guilty to another burglary.
A judge in Houston on Wednesday ordered a pre-sentence investigation for 18-year-old Chad Holley, who faces up to 20 years in prison when he's sentenced in March. Holley pleaded guilty to burglary of a habitation for a burglary last June.
Holley in March 2010 was 15 years old when he was caught as a burglary suspect. Security video from a business showed officers appearing to kick and beat him. Holley in that case was convicted of burglary in juvenile court and received probation.
Four officers were fired. A jury last May acquitted ex-Officer Andrew Blomberg of misdemeanor official oppression. The other three former officers await trial.
