NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A judge could sentence two former Vanderbilt football players accused of raping a co-ed on Monday.

According to reports, the judge is scheduled to hear a motion from Brandon Vandenburg and Cory Batey’s attorneys asking for a new trial.

They claimed the pair didn’t get a fair trial because a member of the jury didn’t reveal that he had been the victim of statutory rape.

The prosecutor, however, said the juror didn’t consider himself a victim, nor did he try to persuade the jury’s opinion.

If the judge doesn’t grant the motion, Vandenburg and Batey could be sentenced today.

That hearing is scheduled to start at 9 a.m.
