MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — A former Fort Riley soldier whose five life sentences were vacated by the Kansas Supreme Court will instead serve 77 years in prison.

Tony Tremayne Lewis was convicted in a series of crimes including rape, kidnapping and assault that occurred in Riley County in the spring of 2009.

He was initially given five life sentences. The state's high court in June upheld the convictions but sent the case back for a new sentencing, finding that a judge misinterpreted Kansas law on punishment for habitual sexual offenders.

KMAN-AM reports Riley County District Judge Meryl Wilson imposed the 77-year sentence during a hearing Tuesday. Lewis will serve the time concurrent with sentences in Geary County for similar crimes.
