A Rensselaer man is scheduled to be sentenced today on rape charges.
John Halacy was the focus of a public outcry last year when a paperwork mistake in the District Attorney's office forced them to reduce rape charges to a misdemeanor.
On Tuesday, John Halacy is expected to receive 4 years in prison.
He’s accused of raping a 14 year old girl.
Halacy is already serving a prison sentence for a home burglary in Colonie committed a short time after the 24-year-old got out of jail on the reduced charges.
