TEMECULA, Calif. (AP) - A Riverside County father and teen daughter have each been placed on four years' probation after pleading guilty to charges in a vigilante attack on a man the girl had accused of rape.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports (http://bit.ly/18Fn9Q0) 36-year-old David Ray Mills pleaded guilty Tuesday to being an accessory to the attack. His 16-year-old daughter pleaded guilty to assault and both also were sentenced to time served.

Prosecutors say the pair watched her friend 21-year-old Andre Dickerson beat Miguel Esteban Cruz with a bat at a Temecula park in January. Cruz suffered skull fractures, broken bones and missing teeth.

Dickerson pleaded guilty to assault and was sentenced to six years in prison.

The girl claimed Cruz raped her in November 2012 after she passed out after drinking alcohol at his home.
