Nearly a year after having his rape conviction thrown out, former Vanderbilt football player Brandon Vandenburg was convicted again of multiple counts of aggravated rape and aggravated sexual battery on Saturday. He was also convicted of one count of unlawful photography.

After just four hours of deliberation, the jury determined that Vandenburg was criminally responsible for sexual acts performed on a woman by Vandenburg’s teammates in 2013. According to the case, Vandenburg was encouraging his teammates to rape an unconscious woman in his dorm room. He was also accused of passing out condoms to his teammates and videotaping the illicit acts.

The second conviction comes after the first case was ruled in mistrial in June 2015. It was determined that one of the jurors was a victim of statutory rape and didn’t disclose it. In the original case, four former Vanderbilt players were charged, but only two were accused of rape and sexual assault.

Vandenburg will face a minimum of 15 years in prison with no possibility of parole.
