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.
