The man whose sentence after being convicted of 17 sexual assaults caused a national controversy in 2007 is headed back to court to be resentenced.

Orlando Paul Cisneros originally had his nearly 13 year sentence suspended and was given three years probation by district judge Matthew Dowd.

After violating probation, another judge imposed the full prison term, saying he did not have authority to reduce it.

But the Kansas Court of Appeals overturned that decision, saying a judge does have discretion to reduce the term.

A re-sentencing date isn't set yet.
