I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but the former Vanderbilt University football player was convicted this week on multiple accounts of aggravated rape and sexual battery for his actions at a party back in 2013. His sentence will be determined at a later date, but it’s hard to believe that he’ll see the light of day again any time soon.
Cory Batey’s childhood and family
Cory Batey was born in Nashville, Tennessee on September 2nd, 1992. He has an older brother, Landon. Cory graduated from McGavock High School in Nashville, Tennessee in 2011. He has a sister named Cheyenne, who is currently attending Vanderbilt University.
Cory Batey’s conviction
Cory Batey, then 19, was originally charged with five counts of aggravated rape, one count of attempted aggravated rape, two counts of aggravated sexual battery and two counts of misdemeanor sexual battery. Cory Batey was convicted of rape and sentenced to 18 years in prison. The court heard from a number of witnesses about the events that took place at the party.
The victim stated that she was raped by Batey and another former football player, Brandon Vandenburg. The two men were also accused of taking photographs of the victim that night and then posting them on social media sites. The court heard that the victim had consumed so much alcohol, she didn’t remember what happened to her after she left an off-campus bar with Vandenburg.
But defense attorneys for Batey said he never touched the woman and it wasn’t clear who assaulted her or how many people may have assaulted her. This is not Batey’s first brush with trouble. He pleaded guilty.
The victim, who is now a 23-year-old student at Vanderbilt University, said she felt “betrayed” by the decision to release him from jail before he appeals. “You’re letting someone who caused me pain and humiliation and shame walk free,” she told The Tennessean. “I would not feel safe with him walking on the street.”
While Batey has not yet appealed his sentence, his attorney, Worrick Robinson, said it’s likely that Batey will pursue an appeal. His lawyer argued that he should be released because he had already served two years in custody while awaiting trial. Judge Robert Echols denied this request but did agree with a motion filed by Batey’s lawyers that would allow him to attend church services on Sundays
Where is cory batey now
Batey is currently serving time at Tennessee State Prison. The address for the prison is: 2408 Rhea Road, Nashville, TN 37218. After his release from prison, he will have to register as a sex offender for life.
If released on parole, there are restrictions that would prevent him from living near campus and attending any school sponsored event. Cory Batey is not eligible for parole until he has served at least 60 percent of his sentence, meaning that it’s possible that he could be released in 2024.
There is also the possibility of being placed on probation if approved for release on parole.If denied parole, he can apply again every year until granted or released.
It’s shocking that the former Vanderbilt football player was convicted of rape and sexual battery. It seems like he’ll be in jail for a long time. It’s going to be difficult for him to remain out of jail for a significant amount of his life. I hope he gets the help he needs in jail to make himself a better person.
