A man suspected in a 1999 Raleigh rape case learned he will go to prison for a long time.

Last year, DNA evidence linked James Henderson to the old rape, kidnapping and burglary case.

In court at that time, his lawyer argued the victim was not raped but had a consensual relationship with Henderson.

But the woman claimed she had never met him before the attack.

A judge sentenced Henderson to serve between 77 and 99 years in prison.
