Son of former Minnesota Twins owner sentenced for exposure

ST. PAUL, Minn. — A judge has ordered sex-offender counseling for an attorney who is the son of former Minnesota Twins owner Calvin Griffith.

Clark Griffith was sentenced Thursday after entering an Alford plea to a misdemeanor indecent-exposure charge in June.

Griffith, who is 70, will not serve jail time. The Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/O2xANP) reports the case could be dismissed in a year.

The Alford plea allowed Griffith to maintain his innocence while acknowledging there was sufficient evidence to be found guilty.

Griffith was accused of exposing himself to a law student last January while an adjunct professor at William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul.

In a statement, the student says Griffith put her in “an impossible position” that night.

Griffith told the judge he was “very remorseful” for what happened.
