The last defendant in the Vanderbilt football rape case has accepted a plea deal that will wrap up the case after five years. 

Jaborian Tip McKenzie, accepted a plea deal Monday that will put him on probation for the next 10 years and require him to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

McKenzie pleaded guilty to facilitation of aggravated rape. He was charged with five counts of aggravated rape and two counts aggravated sexual battery.

McKenzie along with three other football players are charged in the 2013 dorm room rape of a female student. 

Cory Batey, Brandon Banks and Brandon Vandenburg are all currently serving prison time. 

McKenzie has cooperated fully with authorities and testified against his former teammates at every trial.

The victim who has since graduated with a neuroscience degree from Vanderbilt chose not to be in court today.
