    BENNINGTON - The owner of Bennington Subaru pleaded guilty on Monday to four misdemeanor counts, admitting that he used a fake name on a social networking site to persuade women to perform sexual acts with him in return for money.

    Thomas Lyons, 53, of Bennington, pleaded guilty in Bennington criminal court to four misdemeanor charges of prohibited acts for soliciting prostitution. Under a plea agreement, Lyons will spend four years on probation.

    The state said they found no evidence of a “prostitution ring” but instead found that Lyons had recruited young women to perform sexual acts for him and no one else.

    Lyons has no criminal record. In court on Monday, he apologized to his family and anyone he had hurt through his actions.
