MARV ALBERT "was spared jail time" today by a judge who told him that his conviction for misdemeanor assault and battery "would be dropped if he stays out of trouble for a year," according to the AP. VA State Judge Benjamin Kendrick "rejected prosecutors' request that Albert serve a short jail term." Albert "apologized in court" to Vanessa Perhach, the woman who accused him of sexual assault. Albert attorney Roy Black: "I have to say that finally common sense has prevailed" (AP, 10/24).
