Youths sentenced for lineman's death

Six teenagers and one fifty year old man have been convicted of manslaughter following the death of linesman Richard Nieuwenhuize

A Dutch court has convicted six youth players and one of their fathers of manslaughter for their attack on a volunteer linesman who later died in the Netherlands.

Richard Nieuwenhuizen, 41, a linesman affiliated to Dutch youth club Buitenboys, was rushed to hospital after being punched and kicked by players from opponents Nieuw-Sloten during a match in Almere on December 2, 2012, before passing away the following day.

The 50-year-old father was sentenced by judges in Lelystad to six years in prison, while five of the teenagers were given two-year sentences in youth detention, and another was sentenced to a year.

A seventh teenager was sentenced to 30 days of detention for assault.
