VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - A Virginia Beach piano teacher will spend the next 60 days behind bars for sexually assaulting a student.
Macie Pridgen with the Virginia Beach Commonwealth's Attorney's Office told WAVY.com William Bernstein was sentenced to six years with all but 60 days suspended.
"The Commonwealth is very satisfied with this sentence because it was way above the Virginia State Sentencing Guidelines, which recommended he serve no jail time at all," Pridgen said.
Bernstein will also have to register as a sex offender. Bernstein sexually assaulted the victim, who was a piano student, multiple times at the victim's home over a course of several months.
