HANOVER, VA (WWBT) - Thomas Dillon will be spending the next two years in jail after pleading guilty to a series of charges stemming from his July 2010 arrest for having sex with an underage girl in Hanover County.

He pled guilty to two counts of carnal knowledge and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.  He received a nearly three year sentence but was given credit for time already served waiting for his court date today.

Dillon's guilty plea comes less than a month after his former roommate Paul Spence pled no contest to several similar charges after he was arrested for having sex with a 13 year old.  Spence will be spending the next two years in jail as well.
