British millionaire Devinder Kainth is about to be freed of his jail sentence for punching to death a German paedophile. Devinder Kainth saw pictures of his children on Rottman’s iPad.
Estate agent Devinder Kainth was given a six-month prison sentence after admitting the manslaughter of oddball computer programmer Sandro Rottman at a restaurant in the upmarket Spanish resort of Sotogrande.
The sentence is set to be suspended because first-time offenders are normally not forced to do jail time unless they get two years or more.
Rottman, 43, died in hospital after being attacked by estate agent Kainth, 39, in Spinnaker Restaurant on February 7.
The German was being investigated at the time by a judge after police discovered child porn on his computer.
Judge Raquel Gomez Sancho, who sentenced Kainth after the court deal was sealed, ruled heavy-drinking Rottman’s alcohol-related health problems had contributed to his death.
In a two-page document released after a short hearing at Algeciras Criminal Court Number Two, she said “Around 10pm on February 7, the accused was dining with his family at Spinnaker Restaurant in Sotogrande and German national Sandro Rottman was using an iPad in the same restaurant to take photographs among other things.
“When the accused finished eating and got up to leave the restaurant he realised as he talked to Sandro that he had been taking photos of his children without his consent.
“This really upset the accused and led to him shouting at Sandro that he should erase them whilst he demanded he explain his actions.
“The tense situation led to a fight in which the accused punched Sandro several times in the head.
“But due to a severe liver cirrhosis that the victim suffered which the accused was unaware of, the bleeding the punches caused him led to Sandro dying minutes afterwards.”
Manslaughter convictions in Spain normally carry prison sentences of one to four years.
But Kainth’s emotional state when he attacked Rottman – after seeing the pictures of his children – was accepted as a mitigating factor.
Police revealed after Rottman’s violent death that he was facing trial after being caught in possession of child pornography.
Officers said they discovered sickening images on his laptop after being called to a suspected break-in at his home.
