A man, who was 15-years-old when he was originally charged with kidnapping and raping a woman at gunpoint will now face almost one-third of the sentence he was originally imposed. 

Now 32-year-old Brandon Moore was back before a judge, 17 years after the alleged crime, and was once again sentenced to prison. 

Judge Maureen Sweeney sentenced Moore to 50 years in prison. 

Moore was originally sentenced in 2002 to 141 years in prison by Mahoning County Common Pleas Court Judge R. Scott Krichbaum.

But Judge Krichbaum recused himself from the case, and Judge Maureen Sweeney was tasked with deciding whether to use sentencing guidelines from when the crime was committed, or now. 

It has been 17 years since the crime occurred, and convicted rapist Brandon Moore is now 31-years-old.

Some of the sentencing laws have evolved in that time.

It was in 2001 when Moore was just 15-years-old when he was arrested and charged along with three others for the brutal rape of a YSU college student.

The 21-year-old rape victim said she was forced into a car on Detroit Avenue by Moore and three others and taken to a secluded area and raped at gunpoint.

Moore who was tried as an adult and convicted of six counts of rape and gun charges was originally sentenced to 141 years in prison.

A ruling by the Ohio Supreme Court sent the case back to Mahoning County Common Pleas Court for resentencing at least twice since then.

The decision was based on a U.S. Supreme Court decision that determined life sentences for juveniles convicted of non-homicide offenses are "cruel and unusual."

Moore will be eligible for parole when he is 62-years-old.
