Front Royal businessman William Huck was convicted of misdemeanor sexual battery in a Culpeper General District courtroom Wednesday and was sentenced to six months in jail.

Huck’s charge is related to a Feb. 26 incident, according to a Culpeper Police Department (CPD) news release issued in April. The release stated that the allegation was made by an adult female who was part of a group of which Huck was included attending the Culpeper Downtown Carnival.

The group reportedly went to several locations in the downtown Culpeper area before returning to a town residence where the female alleged she was inappropriately touched several times without her consent or permission.

The CPD release stated that other adults intervened when the alleged incident occurred; alcohol was a factor, according to police.

Huck was released on a $3,000 bond following an April 1 arrest by the Warren County Sheriff’s Office.

Huck owns C & C Frozen treats. He is represented by Front Royal attorney David Downes, who declined to comment on the case, which is being appealed.
