He was supposed to have been the top ranking cadet at the Virginia Military Institute.
Instead, he's been thrown out of the corps of cadets-- for allegedly demanding sex from three female cadets.
V-M-I officials told the ``Richmond Times-Dispatch'' that Jerry B. Webb the second, recently chosen as the regimental commander of the Corps of Cadets for the coming year, was expelled during the last week of school for conduct unbecoming a cadet.
The regimental commander is expected to exemplify V-M-I's military, physical and academic standards.
