NHL Hockey Player Slava Voynov Sentenced to Jail for Domestic Violence

Professional hockey player Slava Voynov was sentenced Thursday to 90 days in jail and three years of probation after accepting a plea deal related to domestic assault charges.

Voynov, a 25-year-old defenseman for the Los Angeles Kings of the NHL, entered a no contest plea to a misdemeanor charge of corporal injury to a spouse – his wife, Marta Varlamova.

He must report to jail to begin serving his sentence no later than July 14, according to the OC Register. Voynov must also undergo a year of domestic violence counseling.

Voynov's trial on a felony charge of domestic violence was to begin next week. Prosecutors had alleged Voynov choked and hit his wife and pushed her into a TV during an altercation last year at their home in Redondo Beach.
