A member of the Alleghany County board of supervisors will spend the next several days in jail.

Matthew Garten was found guilty of three charges in connection to an incident at the Homestead in Bath County last month.

Garten's lawyer tells WDBJ7 he went to the resort with a college friend and "stayed too long."

Under a plea agreement, Garten was found guilty of a misdemeanor obstruction and two-assault charges.

He was sentenced to 30 days in jail, with 20 days suspended.

Lawyer Thomas Cullen tells us, Garten "accepts responsibility for his conduct" that night.

When asked if he would step down, Cullen tells us Garten is looking forward to moving forward.

Cullen says under a Virginia statue, Garten doesn't meet the criteria to be removed from office.
