Stephen Dalton Baril, a grandson of a former governor of Virginia, entered an Alford plea to charges of misdemeanor sexual battery and felony unlawful wounding.

A grandson of a former governor of Virginia has avoided prison time after being accused of rape.

Judge Humes J. Franklin on Friday sentenced the 21-year-old former U.Va. student to five years' supervised probation.

Franklin accepted the plea agreement, deeming it a fair compromise, in part because neither party was happy.

In a victim statement, the woman condemned the "year and a half of hell," Baril put her through.

She has rebuilt her life over 17 months and said she agreed to a plea deal to avoid reliving the trauma.

Baril is the grandson of John Dalton, a Republican who served as governor from 1978 to 1982. »
