VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) A Virginia restaurant owner accused of spanking three young women he was helping financially has pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual battery.

Media outlets say Henry Allen Fitzsimmons was sentenced to two years in prison after he entered his plea Wednesday in a Virginia Beach court.

Fitzsimmons also pleaded guilty to perjury involving a liquor license application for his restaurant.
