Extreme amends



In an effort to atone for past wrongs William Beebe e-mailed a woman he had date raped twenty years ago at a University of Virginia fraternity party. The victim, however, was not satisfied with an apology and took the e-mails to the police.

This sketch is from the preliminary hearing on March 24, 2006 where Beebe and the victim came face to face for the first time since they were students at UVA. The case went to the Grand Jury which indicted, and a trial date was set for November 27.  Instead of going to trial Beebe entered a guilty plea earlier this week and will be sentenced March 15.
