ST. PAUL, MN (AP) - 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.
