DOVER, Del. (AP) — Delaware prosecutors have reached plea agreements resolving several rape cases against a former University of Delaware athlete already serving a six-year prison sentence for sex offenses.

A judge scheduled a plea hearing Wednesday in Sussex County for former UD baseball player Clay Conaway. He’s facing five counts of second-degree rape involving four women. Conaway’s expected to plead no contest to the lesser charge of fourth-degree rape in three of the cases, and guilty to third-degree rape in the other. Fourth-degree rape carries no mandatory prison sentence, while third-degree rape carries a mandatory minimum of two years behind bars. Prosecutors have agreed to ask for no more than four additional years in prison.
