Linesman Death: Dutch Amateur Footballers Convicted of Manslaughter of Richard Nieuwenhuizen

Six teenagers and father of youth player sentenced for beating linesman to death.

Six Dutch teenagers and a 52-year-old man have been convicted of the manslaughter of a football linesman after they kicked him to death at an under-17s match.

Richard Nieuwenhuizen, a 41-year-old father of three, died from severe head injuries after he was attacked by the footballers in December.

Judges in Lelystad, the Netherlands, sentenced the father of a player identified only as El-Hasan D, to six years in prison for his part in the attack.

Five teenagers were given two-year sentences and a sixth was sentenced to a year. A seventh player, aged 15, was sentenced to 30 days' detention for assault.

Imo, Those aren't sentences they're slaps on their wrists. I'm sure their harsh (NOT) sentence learned them a lesson (NOT). Sickening that that is all they got. Our world is messed up, they should be looked at as adults who killed a man, a father.

And sent away for a good long long while.
