    Vigil was originally arrested for indecent exposure, harassment and theft.  Police arrested Vigil May 16, 2009 near the Loaf and Jug in Walsenburg where he was allegedly engaging in the act of exposing himself to a minor child and her father and he was allegedly under the influence of alcohol. On Sept. 30, 2008, Vigil entered a plea of guilty to 2 counts of indecent exposure, 2 counts of harassment and 1 count of theft.  He received a concurrent sentence of one year in jail, probation and a personal recognizance  bond.  After given credit for time served, Vigil was released on July 14, 2009  with the stipulation that he:

    •complete phsycosexual evaluation and treatment,

    •have absolutely no contact with children under 18,

    •must attend, participate in and successfully complete sex offender evaluation and treatment program,

    •must not purchase, possess or consume any alcohol.

    On Sept. 5, 2009, Vigil was again arrested. This time for three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.  He was arrested while in a  car with a minor and was in possession of alcohol.  Although he was released on Sept. 7, he was again taken into custody on Sept. 10 for violating probation, not attending sex offender treatment programs, and testing positive for marijuana.
