A millionaire who punched a paedophile to death after seeing him take pictures of his young daughter is to be spared jail.
According to Daily Mirror, Dad-of-three Devinder Kainth was sentenced to six months after admitting the manslaughter of Sandro Rottman at a restaurant in the upmarket resort of Sotogrande, Spain.
But the sentence is to be suspended as he made a deal with prosecutors – and first offenders in Spain are normally not jailed unless they are given two years or more.
And it emerged Kainth, an estate agent, may even end up being let off with just a fine after his lawyer appealed.
A source said: “Mr Kainth feels aggrieved as prosecutors offered him a suspended jail term replaceable by a fine.
“He agreed but the judge said the law had changed and the swap was off. Now he wants the deal of a fine he was offered.”
Rottman, 43, died in hospital after the attack in the Spinnaker Restaurant. Kainth, 39 – out for a meal with partner Gemma Hawkins and their children – turned violent after finding snaps of his kids on the computer programmer’s iPad.
Rottman, a German was facing trial at the time over child porn on his computer.
Judge Raquel Gomez Sancho, who sentenced Kainth after the deal, ruled Rottman’s health problems from heavy drinking had contributed to his death.
