    Former restaurant owner pleads guilty to aggravated assault

    A former restaurant owner accused of drugging a customer and sexually battering her has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of aggravated assault and will spend the next five years on probation.

    Leaton David Scott Moore, 30, was the owner of Blind Pig Tavern when a University of Mississippi female student claimed Moore drugged her drink and took her home so he could have sex with her. He was arrested on Nov. 14, 2008, and indicted by the grand jury in February 2009 and charged with sexual battery. (December 23, 2010, Page 2A)
