Russian boxer Valery Tretyakov convicted of manslaughter
In late October of last year, Tretyakov and his brother got into a heated argument with a third party outside a Kamensk-Uralsky restaurant that quickly escalated into blows. After being hit first by the young man, the boxer delivered two punches, causing the victim to fall and hit his head on the asphalt. The young man died at the scene, RIA Novosti reports.
Prosecutors requested that Tretyakov serve a prison term of no less than 16 months for the wrongful death of the victim. The courts, however, sided with the boxer's attorney in that Tretyakov was acting within the limits of justifiable self-defense.
As part of his sentence, Tretyakov will pay more than $9,000 to the victim's relatives and will be unable to leave his home between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. for the next 12 months. Each month, Tretyakov will be required to register with local police, according to RIA Novosti.
