Commonwealth v. John James Aggar; Previously Convicted Rapist Sentenced to 45 Years for Sexual Assaults of Two Minors

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

Colin D. Stolle, Commonwealth's Attorney for the city of Virginia Beach, announced that John James Aggar, 52 years old, of Virginia Beach, Virginia, was sentenced today by Circuit Court Judge H. Thomas Padrick for Forcible Sodomy – Victim Under Age 13 (2 counts), Object Sexual Penetration – Victim Under Age 13, and Custodial Indecent Liberties (2 counts).   Judge Padrick sentenced Aggar to eighty (80) years in prison, with 35 years suspended, leaving 45 years to serve. 

Aggar pled guilty to one count of Custodial Indecent Liberties and was found guilty after a trial before Judge Padrick on the remaining charges.  The Commonwealth's evidence proved that on August 4, 2016, Aggar inappropriately touched a minor known to him while the minor slept.  Immediately the victim woke up a family member and reported the incident. 

On September 3, 2016, another victim who was known to Aggar reported to police that Aggar had sexually abused her when she was a minor.  This occurred in the home of a family member around 2008-2009.  Aggar was intoxicated and molested the victim as the victim slept in a living room chair.  The victim reported the abuse to a family member the next day.  During the investigation, the victim revealed that the abuse had been happening for an extended period of time.

Aggar has prior convictions for Rape, Crimes against Nature, DUI, Possession of Marijuana (3 counts), Assault and Battery of a Family Member, Concealment (3 counts), Public Intoxication (2 counts), and several traffic offenses.​

Deputy Commonwealth's Attorney Paul J. Powers prosecuted this case. Please contact Macie Allen if additional information is desired.
