Shortly after the verdict was read, Robert Pfaff leaned forward in his seat, put his head in his hands and just sat there in silence for a few minutes. Pfaff, along with at least four other victims of convicted burglar Aaron Nguyen, couldn’t believe what they just heard.
Nguyen, who is currently serving five years of supervised probation for burglarizing his neighbors’ homes in 2012, will get no jail time for violating the terms of his probation.
District Court judge Sheri Raphaelson instead took defense attorney Steve Aarons’ account of Nguyen’s progress in dealing with his bipolar disorder since the violation, and simply ordered Nguyen to keep making progress. She also resumed his probation with no time added. Consequences for violating his probation could have included up to 50 years in prison.
During the part of the hearing where the victims were allowed to speak about how Nguyen’s crimes affected them, Pfaff and others had plenty to say.
