Sentencing took place Friday for a Battle Creek man who pleaded guilty to sexual assault after a rape kit was finally tested.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports that 24-year-old David Hull was sentenced to up to 30 years in prison, on several criminal sexual conduct charges. Hull admitted in May to sexually abusing his 14-year-old neighbor in 2013.

Hull was charged in January, after Attorney General Bill Schuette appointed a special assistant prosecutor to help work through Calhoun County's untested rape kits, of which there was around 300. Using DNA, these old kits could lead to charges if enough evidence can be gathered, and alleged victims do choose to go forward.
