ROANOKE, Va. - A former Virginia Tech employee has been sentenced to six months in jail for assaulting a supervisor at the university's power plant.

The Roanoke Times ( reports 49-year-old DeWayne Edward Wilburn was sentenced after being convicted Thursday of a reduced charge of misdemeanor assault and battery.

A Montgomery County General District Court judge also banned Wilburn from all Virginia Tech properties and ordered him to stay away from the victim, Ted Allen Acord.
