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.
