NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A former Vanderbilt University football player convicted of raping an unconscious woman with his teammates in 2013 is facing a minimum of 15 years in prison at his sentencing hearing Friday morning.
Cory Batey, one of four players charged with raping the woman at Vanderbilt, was convicted in April of aggravated rape, which carries a minimum 15-year sentence in Tennessee.
He and Brandon Vandenburg were convicted last year, but the verdicts were tossed because a juror did not reveal he was a victim of statutory rape. They have both been convicted a second time. Two other players are awaiting trial.
