"My first thought was, nobody is going to get hurt anymore."

In an effort to save his child from torment that he endured in his younger years, a man resorted to murder of a man that he states use to rape him when he was a child.

Aaron Vargas, 32, plead no contest Tuesday to charges of voluntary manslaughter after admitting to killing his neighbor, Darrell McNeill, 63, with the use of an antique pistol, back in 2009.

Mendocino County Superior Court Judge Ron Brown sentenced Vargas to nine years in prison.

According to Vargas, he had been sexually assaulted by McNeill, initially, when he was only 11.  The family added that he was stalked, tormented and raped on numerous occasions.

Prior to the actual murder, it was reported that the neighbor was trying to become closer with Vargas' fiance and his baby daughter.

Occurring on February 8, Vargas states that he drove to McNeill's home, the two engaged in an argument and he proceeded to shoot him once.

As McNeill's wife was home during the murder, Vargas informed her of her husband's past and reportedly asked her not to call the police until he was actually dead.

Following the murder, many men came forward and recounted their own encounters with McNeill and the anguish they had to endure from his hands.

Richard Massingale, whose brother committed suicide days after revealing his past with McNeill, spoke on his late sibling's torment.

"He told me this person (McNeill) was coming back into his life and harassing him. He kept saying, 'I just don't know what to do,'" Massingale said. "Four days later, my little brother killed himself.  Shot himself in the head."

The family of Vargas reacted to the sentence, believing it is unjust and his actions only happened because McNeill returned to his life and was stalking him.

"I think he mentally broke as a result of being harassed by Darryl," his mother Robin says. "He would not leave him alone. He needs counseling and to be with his fiancee and baby.  He doesn't need prison."

In April, Vargas pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter in an agreement that would cap his prison sentence at 10 years — but could have let him go free on probation.

In cases such as this, should Vargas have received such a sentence for his vigilante actions?

    no i dont think he should spend any time in jail the guy he killed was clearly a sick person who preyed on others and if he would not have killed him there is no telling what other terrible acts he would have committed on someone else sorry but some people deserve to die and besides he proberly felt like he had to do it to save his family the cops dont always save everyone.

    For this man spent 1 day in jail, it would have 1 day too many. He doesnt not deserve prison, he deserves counseling and healing. The legal system this time has it WRONG

    I was molested by a family member when I was 7 years old - it's something that will always be with me - the fact that this person is still walking around and possibly doing this to other children haunts me - sad that there is a statute of limitations on these types of crimes, the victims live with it forever, we should at least be able to rely on the justice system to prosecute the perps.........

    Its surprising that his crime wasn't justifiable homicide. My guess is that with good behavior he'll be out well before his nine years are up.

    That's very messed up it feels like the law is not always set up for the innocent foreal!

    There are communities who cover up for the child rapists, especially in worcester county and wicomico county in MD. Local businesses employ these men and women because they do not care about children. If nothing is done, then the family members and *****ociates of these sick people will terrorize the victims. Now the predators may start campaigning to put their victims on terror lists, in order to scare them when the victims retaliate and threaten them.
