A Potsdam man, who could have faced a maximum of 95 years behind bars for raping a teenage girl at gunpoint, has been sentenced to 11 years in prison as part of a plea bargain with prosecutors.

During the encounters, Brown displayed a gun.
The 27 year old defendant had been indicted on several sex-related charges by a grand jury last March.
