Spoiled frat boy allegedly ‘bit the lip and breast’ of a female student

A former University of Virginia (UVA) fraternity brother and grandson of a former state governor was charged with rape and forcible sodomy that reportedly left a female victim with cuts, scratches, and bruises.

New York Post reports that Dalton Baril, 20, turned himself in to police at the Albemarle County Regional Jail in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Wednesday, and appeared in court via teleconferences to face the felony charges against him.

According to court documents, the incident began at the Trinity Irish Pub, a bar near UVA, where Baril spotted the victim. The underage Baril allegedly ordered the victim a shot of tequila, according to prosecutor Areshini Pather. He then tried to kiss her but the victim replied, “not in public.”

The pair left the pub together and went to his apartment. The victim told Baril that she wouldn’t be staying long. She used his restroom and when she walked out, Baril was waiting, in his boxers only. Surprised, she reiterated that she didn’t plan to stay long.

“Please don’t make this bad,” the victim told Baril, according to Pather.

When the victim attempted to leave the apartment, Baril stopped her and allegedly starting biting her breast and lip. She was eventually released and immediately went to a hospital for medical assistance. The attending nurse said that the victim had bruises on her face and injuries to her vaginal area.

Later, Baril sent the victim a text message, asking for forgiveness. He indicated that he got too carried away.

“I’m sorry if I got overly excited.”

Baril’s lawyer contends that the version of events described by the victim isn’t at all what happened on the night in question. The attorney intends to provide evidence and information that “substantively contradicts” the prosecutor’s version of events.

The former frat boy, who comes from a family deeply rooted in Virginia Republican politics, withdrew from UVA after the allegations. According to the Washington Post, he’s the grandson of the late state Governor, John N. Dalton, a graduate of UVA who served as governor from 1978 to 1982.

Baril has yet to enter a plea. Check back with Crime Online as additional information becomes available.
