Va. Tech student charged with sexual battery


Virginia Tech police say a student from Chesapeake has been charged with sexual battery for an incident that occurred on campus last fall.
Police said in a statement that a student reported the offense on Friday. Police identified the suspect as William Gillespie and arrested him at his residence hall.
Sexual battery is a misdemeanor. Gillespie was released on $2,500 bond. Online court records don’t list an attorney for him.
Virginia Tech police chief Kevin Foust says the case “is a fine example of the seriousness by which Virginia Tech identifies and responds” to reported sex offenses.
