Former Illinois football player convicted of rape
URBANA, Ill. — A former University of Illinois football player has been convicted in a 1995 rape and could be headed to prison for as long as 90 years.
A jury in Urbana on Wednesday convicted 42-year-old Steven Feagin of aggravated criminal sexual assault. The victim was a 22-year-old student who was raped in her apartment near the university campus in Urbana.
The News-Gazette reports that Feagin will be sentenced in July. He was convicted of three separate acts and faces up to 30 years in prison for each.
Feagin still faces charges in two other 1990s rapes in Champaign County.
He was a running back on the Illinois football team while in school from 1989 through 1992.
Feagin was arrested in Florida in 2008 based on DNA evidence.
