After pleading no contest on July 2 to one misdemeanor count of corporal injury to a spouse in the Torrance Superior Court, Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov was sentenced to 90-days in jail which Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Eric C. Taylor allowed Voynov to serve at count jail or any police facility.
Voynov is now serving his domestic violence sentence at the 30-bed Seal Beach Detention Center.
Seal Beach police refused to confirm that Voynov was there but California law requires such information to be public, therefore they have now confirmed to the LA Times that Voynov is paying $100 a day to serve his sentence in the police facility of the Orange County seaside community. He began serving his sentence on July 7.
Bedding and uniforms are provided. He's allowed to bring a number of personal items, including an inexpensive watch, five photographs and up to $100 in cash for purchases from the commissary, per the LA Times.
The jail first became noteworthy in 2013 when it began offering convicted criminals the opportunity to pay for upgraded jail experience.
Voynov’s lawyers previously denied information on where Voynov was serving his time for his safety.Read more... Join the Conversation...
