After five hours of deliberations, Vandenburg was found guilty on all counts, which includes five counts of aggravated rape, two counts of aggravated sexual battery, and one count of unlawful photography.

Vandenburg faces 15 to 20 years in prison for the 2013 rape of an unconscious student he was dating at the time.

This was Vandenburg’s second time to stand trial in the rape case.

He and Cory Batey were previously tried together and convicted on all charges before a judge issued a mistrial last year due to juror misconduct.

Batey has since been tried separately and was found guilty on one count of aggravated rape and three counts of aggravated sexual battery, one count of facilitation of aggravated rape, and two counts of attempted aggravated rape.

Two others accused in the case, Jaborian McKenzie and Brandon Banks, have yet to go to trial.

They also face five counts of aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery.Click here for News 2 coverage of the Vanderbilt rape case.
