aaron biber2 Aaron Biber Gets 18 Years In Prison

Former attorney Aaron Biber was sentenced in Hennepin County District Court to 18 years in prison for raping a 15-year-old boy.He’ll serve at least a dozen years before going on probation.  Although the prosecution sought a 24-year term, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman says he’s satisfied with the penalty and believes it sends a message to other offenders that they will be caught and they will pay. 

 Defense Attorney Rachael Goldberger took issue with Judge Lloyd Zimmerman’s demeanor at sentencing, calling it “emotional.”  She says there will be an appeal.   

Biber pleaded guilty to raping the boy, who was his son’s friend. He was once treasurer of the Minnesota Bar Association.
