Suspects in assaults on Cleveland girl to be in court


The 14 men are scheduled to be in a state district courtroom Monday in Liberty for status updates on their cases. The investigation began last year after one of the girl's friends told a teacher he had seen a lurid cell phone video that showed the girl being raped in an abandoned trailer.

Also accused are six juvenile boys, three of whom have pleaded guilty.

Authorities say the girl was assaulted on at least five occasions from mid-September 2010 to early December 2010 in Cleveland, a small city about 45 miles northeast of Houston.
