No prison for grandson of ex-Virginia governor in rape case
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- A former Virginia governor's grandson accused of raping a fellow University of Virginia student has avoided prison time. The Daily Progress reports Stephen Dalton Baril's charges were reduced Friday from felony rape and felony sodomy to misdemeanor sexual battery and felony unlawful wounding as part of his Alford plea, which acknowledges sufficient evidence for conviction without admitting guilt.
