Ex-Va. boarding school director convicted

BOWLING GREEN, Va. (AP) — A former program director at a faith-based boarding school for troubled teens in Virginia has been convicted of sexual battery.

Nathaniel Daniel entered an Alford plea to the misdemeanor charge this month in Caroline County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.

A judge sentenced him to 12 months in prison but suspended it and ordered Daniel to undergo a sex offender evaluation.

Daniel was removed as a program director at the Abundant Life Academy, a boarding school for troubled teens in Milford.

The Free Lance-Star (http://bit.ly/1nKi1f4) reports a police tip about an incident in June led to the charge against him. No other details were released.

Four others former workers at the school face trial in October on assault charges in a February incident involving a student.
