By BBN Staff: After 7 years waiting on trial, last week a jury found Aaron Wilson guilty of 2 counts of false pretense of a public officer. However, sentencing was postponed until yesterday.
The judge decided to impose two, $2,000 fines on the fake cop.
Additionally, he was discounted $250 for the delays in his case.
So in essence, he has to pay $3,500 dollars in fines of which half was required up front. The other half should be paid by June 9th, if not, Wilson will serve 9 months in prison for each count he was found guilty of.
According to his attorney, Christelle Wilson, she is glad for the outcome and he could have been slapped with 2 years in prison if the judge did not exercise leniency.
Wilson maintains that he was not impersonating a cop but was simply acting as a special constable.
