A familiar name in the local criminal justice system has been sentenced to four years for 2nd degree rape.

John Halacy of Rensselaer will have to register as a sex offender when he's released from prison.

Halacy pleaded guilty in May to raping a 14-year-old girl.  He had faced similar charges involving a 13-year-old girl, but they were dropped after an assistant D.A. failed to file the proper paperwork in a timely fashion, causing a firestorm.

Halacy is already serving 5-and-a-half years for a Colonie burglary he copped to in April.  The two sentences will run concurrently
