TV cams galore ready for Beebe
TV crews from at least five stations are currently perched around the entrance of the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court, awaiting the exit of William Beebe, the man accused of raping a woman 21 years ago when the two were UVA students. The subject of a January cover story in the Hook, the tale of a man who– following his 12-step program's edict to apologize to those he's "harmed"– has received nationwide attention including a story in People.
Because Virginia has no statute of limitations for felonies, Beebe could face life in prison if convicted. He's now out on bond.
4:15pm breaking news update: The hearing is over, and the charges have been certified to a grand jury. More later.
