Clare Niederhauser attends a hearing on Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013, at Second District Court in Layton, Utah. Mr. Niederhauser, who drew support from neighbors after he was arrested for shooting at a suspected burglar who was fleeing his property, apologized during a court appearance for taking matters into his own hands. He made the comments after agreeing to a plea deal that included a reduced charge. He also agreed to pay a $700 fee, take a weapons class and forfeit the weapon he used, a .357-caliber handgun.
