Former Vanderbilt football player Corey Batey has been sentenced to 15 years in prison after being convicted of rape.

“It is one of the saddest cases that I have ever encountered. And I’ve been in the legal business for 32 years,” Judge Monte Watkins said as he handed down the decade and a half prison sentence, according to The Tennessean(RELATED: Read The Graphic PoliceReport From Montee Ball’s Arrest For Allegedly Beating His Girlfriend)

He also added, “All of the defendants in this case basically have life sentences.”

The unnamed victim was crying as she read a statement to the court, saying in part, “It will never be possible for anyone to put into words how this has affected me”

Fellow former Vanderbilt players Brandon E. Banks and Jaborian McKenzie are awaiting trial for the same crime and Brandon Vandenburg has already been convicted.
