A member of the award winning Christian rock group, Raze will go to prison for molestation and rape.

Ja'Marc Davis pleaded guilty last month to charges of lewd molestation, forcible sodomy and rape by instrumentation. Those charges stemmed from his sexual relationship with a former backup dancer for the group; she was 14 years old.

Tuesday, he was sentenced to 5 years in prison and 5 years probation. But he could get out of prison in a year if he completes a program for sex offenders.
