A former chiropractor, also accused of being a peeping tom, pleaded guilty earlier this week in the theft of women's underwear.
Sean Maas pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of third-degree burglary in New Castle County Superior Court. In exchange, prosecutors dropped other burglary and theft charges.
The News Journal of Wilmington reports that the 40-year-old Newark man faces up to three years in prison, but under guidelines he is likely to get probation.
State officials suspended Maas' chiropractor's license last year after he was arrested on burglary and peeping charges.
On Nov. 7, Maas was arrested for burglary and a peeping after he allegedly broke into a Newark, Del. home and took clothing and lingerie from an unoccupied bedroom belonging to a 21-year-old University of Delaware student, according to police.
During that incident, police say a passerby spotted Maas crouching near a first floor window of a home on the unit block of Choate Street. When police arrived at the scene, they say they spotted Maas walking in a parking lot with women’s lingerie hanging from his waist.
As an officer tried to take him into custody, Maas allegedly fled on foot. Police say an officer chased after him and shot him with a Taser, causing him to fall to the ground.
A month later, he was arrested again on charges of breaking into an acquaintance's Greenville home to steal women's underwear.
The woman told police she found Maas on the main floor of her house as she returned upstairs from the basement. Police say the woman immediately told Maas to get out of the house and watched him leave in his silver Mercedes C260.
Police say further investigation revealed several items were missing from the woman’s home, including prescription medication, jewelry and female undergarments. Police later found Maas’ Mercedes near the woman’s home that same day, according to investigators.
