A man convicted of sexually assaulting two Kearns teenagers and then almost slashing one of them to death will not be paroled this year as previously scheduled.

Roberto Arguelles, who was sentenced to two five-years-to-life terms for aggravated sexual assault and attempted criminal homicide, will next appear before the Board of Pardons in June 1991."I'm still concerned for the safety of the public in general," said board member Paul Boyden. "Why this wasn't a homicide I don't know. It is incumbent on you to show improvement."

Since his imprisonment, Arguelles has been involved in a stabbing and a fight, as well as continued drug abuse. Board members said they are not certain if they will give Arguelles a parole date in 1991 and encouraged Arguelles to get back into therapy in order to qualify for a parole date at the next hearing.
