Marine sentenced in alleged rape

From Times Wire Reports

An American Marine accused in an alleged gang rape of a Japanese woman in October was sentenced to 600 days in prison for "committing indecent acts" but cleared of rape charges, the U.S. military said.

A court-martial also found Gunnery Sgt. Jarvis D. Raynor, 35, guilty of larceny, conspiracy to engage in indecent acts, violation of military orders and adultery. His sentence includes a demotion in rank to private and a bad-conduct discharge.

Raynor is the second Marine sentenced in the case involving a 20-year-old woman in the southern city of Hiroshima.
