FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — A former University of Saint Francis athlete has
been sentenced to a year in prison for his role in the rape of an
incapacitated woman at a party.
Twenty-three-year-old Troy Turner apologized during an Allen County court
hearing Wednesday during which he was sentenced on a sexual battery
charge. The Journal Gazette reports Turner is the second of three men to
be sentenced for the attack that happened after an alcohol-fueled house
party in October 2011.
Former St. Francis football players Austin Bower and Alexander Beierwalter
pleaded guilty to rape charges. Bower was sentenced last week to six years
in prison, while Beierwalter is awaiting sentencing.
Turner had been a walk-on basketball player at the Fort Wayne school.
