LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- A Lawrence man has been convicted of raping a University of Kansas student 17 years ago.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports a Douglas County jury returned the verdict Friday afternoon against 41-year-old Robert E. Grey.

Grey had been convicted once previously in the case and given a 26-year sentence. But the Kansas Court of Appeals overturned the 2009 conviction, finding that prosecutorial misconduct deprived him of a fair trial.

The crime occurred on May 11, 1997. Grey was accused of driving the student from a campus parking lot and raping her in a secluded area near Lawrence High School.

District Judge Michael Malone scheduled sentencing for June 20. Grey's attorney indicated she would file motions before then.
