Kings defenseman Slava Voynov entered a plea of no contest to a misdemeanor count of corporal injury to a spouse Thursday in Los Angeles County Superior Court in Torrance and will serve 90 days in jail plus three years probation. He waived his right to a trial in accepting the deal with the District Attorney.
Voynov’s trial on felony domestic violence was to begin next week.
District Attorney Frank Dunnick told the court that a conviction means Voynov would be deported from the United States. Voynov’s defense team objected and Judge Taylor says that it’s a matter for immigration to determine.
In addition, Voynov must complete a 52-week domestic violence course, perform eight hours of community service and pay fines totally roughly $700.
