A Charlotte Court House man was sentenced to 20 years in jail with 17 years in jail suspended following entering an alford plea to an amended charge of aggravated sexual battery. An alford plea means that Brian Devon Boise asserted innocence but admitted that there was enough evidence presented to find him guilty.

According to the Virginia Courts Case Information database, Boise will also be required to serve three years of supervised probation upon release.

Boise was nol prossed — meaning the charges were abandoned by the court — on 17 charges of rape of a victim 13 years or younger and on 13 charges of carnal knowledge of a victim 13-14 years old without force.

According to Lunenburg County Commonwealth’s Attorney Robert Clement, conditions of Boise’s suspended sentence include good behavior for 20 years, supervised probation for three years and warrantless searches and seizures for five years upon his release. Boise must also make no contact and stay off the property of the victim and immediate family members. He’s forbidden from loitering around property and within 100 feet of where children may be, including schools and daycares, etc.

“(Boise) shall not be alone with any female children under the age of 18 without responsible adult supervision and must comply with Sex Offender Registry registration requirements,” Clement said.

According to the Lunenburg County Sheriff’s Office and Clement, Boise was arrested June 3, 2017 on a warrant of rape following an investigation led by the sheriff’s office and the Lunenburg County Department of Social Services.

The investigation began after an alleged rape of a minor less than 13 years of age in Aug. 2014, police say.

As Clement said in a previous interview, Boise lived in Lunenburg at the time of incidents in 2012-14 and in Charlotte Court House at the time of the arrest.
