PETER T. Aldan was sentenced by Superior Court Associate Judge Joseph N. Camacho to 5 years imprisonment, but all suspended except for 77 days that the defendant has already served.

This means that Aldan, 29, is now out of prison.

Judge Camacho on Wednesday also ordered Aldan to pay court costs and fees in the total amount of $145.

In addition, Aldan will perform 100 hours of community service and report to the Community Guidance Center for counseling.

Aldan was ordered not to have any contact with the now 7-year-old victim.

Last year, the court found probable cause to charge Aldan with sexual assault of a minor in the second degree. He was accused of sexually molesting a then-6-year-old girl.

On Feb. 7, 2020, Assistant Attorney General Samantha Vickery filed an amended information deleting “Count I, Sexual Abuse of a Minor in the Second Degree,” which was replaced with a single count of child abuse.

According to the factual basis of the plea agreement Aldan did touch a child under the age of 18 “in a manner that inflicted mental distress to her and over whom he occupies a position of authority, harming or threatening the child’s physical or mental health and well-being.”

Aldan was represented by Assistant Public Defender Jean Pierre Nogues.
