Library wanker gets off on Alford plea
The man accused of publicly masturbating in Clemons Library, Anthony Daniel Landram, pled guilty to charges of obscene sexual display at the Albemarle General District Court June 7. The defendant took an Alford plea, acknowledging that the prosecutor had enough evidence to convict him without technically admitting guilt.
University police arrested 28 year-old Landram on April 21 after two UVA students and a library employee found him masturbating to pornography on a laptop on the fourth floor of Clemons Library. Judge William Barkley sentenced Landram to a 90-day suspended sentence pending two years good behavior. Landram is prohibited from further contact with UVA, excepting legitimate medical need.
