Justin Batten was also sentenced to 18 years in prison for aggravated kidnapping, officials with the Brazos County District Attorney's Office said.

Batten was charged in 2019 after an 18-year-old woman reported being forced behind a trash bin and raped in an alley behind a shopping center.

Police identified Batten through surveillance video, and his DNA matched evidence that was collected from the woman during a medical exam following the attack, officials said.
