ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — A former vice principal at West Potomac High School has pleaded guilty to buying alcohol for one of his students after last year's homecoming dance.

Forty-two-year-old Aaron Engley of Corolla, North Carolina, received a 12-month suspended jail sentence Wednesday after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The suspended sentence requires him to remain on good behavior and avoid contact with the teen.

Prosecutors say Engley drove a 17-year-old female student to an Alexandria bar after the school's 2014 homecoming dance and bought her a drink.

Engley's lawyer, Patrick Anderson, declined to comment Thursday. Fairfax County Public Schools spokesman John Torre said Engley resigned in August and had been on administrative leave before that.
