A jury late Friday found former Vanderbilt football player Cory Batey guilty as charged of aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery. Defense attorney Courtney Teasley said she believes there is grounds to appeal the verdict, The Tennessean reports. Batey, along with Brandon Vandenburg, were both found guilty of charges against them after a trial in 2015; a mistrial led to a second trial. The jury in the mistrial found Batey and Vandenburg guilty of more severe charges. Vandenburg’s trial is scheduled for June.
