University of Virginia Student Stephen Dalton Baril has been charged with rape as a result of an incident that occurred on February 1st. His father has stated that he is no longer enrolled in school, saying “it was very difficult under the circumstances for him to continue” his education.
After turning himself in to the magistrate’s office, Baril was arrested by Charlottesville police on Wednesday morning. Authorities have revealed that he faces charges of rape and forcible sodomy as a result of his action in February.
Only a few hours after his arrest, Baril appeared in a district court where Judge Robert Downer granted his counsel’s request to release him into the custody of his parents on $10,000 bond. The judge cited his cooperation with authorities.
The Prosecutor, Areshini Pather, described the allegations against Baril at the bond hearing, stating that Baril had restrained and sexually assaulted the victim. She sustained multiple bruises and bites. Baril had also later sent the woman a text saying, “I’m sorry if I got overly excited.”
