Mr. Pena, who turned 28 on Friday, was convicted in March on three counts of predatory sexual assault and related charges. Justice Carruthers declared a mistrial on two rape counts, which unlike the other counts required a finding of penetration, after the jury of eight men and four women said they were at an impasse on those charges.
