    A former student at an elite Massachusetts college convicted of raping a woman on campus has been sentenced to three years in prison.

    The Berkshire Eagle reports that 27-year-old Yoonsang Bae, of Boston, was sentenced Monday after he was convicted Friday of raping a then-19-year-old woman at a Williams College dorm room in July 2014.

    Bae was working on a summer research project when the victim visited friends on campus for the weekend. Bae reportedly raped her after the two had been drinking.

    Assistant District Attorney Stephanie Ilberg read a statement submitted by the victim. The woman described how the guilt and shame following the assault led her to consider suicide.
