MARV ALBERT GIVEN 12-MONTH SUSPENDED SENTENCE & COUNSELLING
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).
