LYNCHBURG, Va., Jan. 6 (UPI) -- A former administrator at Liberty University has been spared jail for breaking into a house in Lynchburg, Va.

But Scott Alan Ray, who was director of convocation at the Baptist school founded by evangelist Jerry Falwell, faces more serious charges in neighboring Campbell County, the Lynchburg News & Advance reported. He has been indicted there on four charges of burglary and one charge of possession of drugs, bottles of painkillers allegedly taken from a house he entered.

Ray pleaded guilty Tuesday in Lynchburg County to a charge of trespassing. The judge imposed a 12-month suspended sentence, Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Rebecca Wetzel said.

Wetzel said the judge imposed conditions, including good behavior and completion of a drug rehabilitation program. There was no plea agreement guaranteeing him a suspended sentence, she said.
