Former Culpeper Mayor Chip Coleman is appealing a sexual battery conviction. The Free Lance-Star newspaper reports Coleman will appear in circuit court October 20th. Coleman was found guilty in district court earlier this month of hugging a woman and rubbing his chest against hers after a Christmas party. The woman testified that Coleman continued to press against her after she told him to stop. Judge Edward Carpenter ruled there was some use of force and “sexual intent.” Coleman was defeated for re-election in May. The Culpeper district judge fined him $2500 and gave him a suspended jail sentence.
