The older brother of AL MVP Dustin Pedroia is facing child molestation charges.
He was released on $50,000 bail and a court hearing was set for Feb. 4.
The crimes allegedly took place four years ago, but the alleged victim only recently told one of his parents, who contacted authorities.
It wasn't known whether Brett Pedroia is represented by an attorney. The Yolo County district attorney's office didn't return telephone messages.
