Richard Vanecko begins jail sentence at McHenry County Jail
February 14, 2014 (McHENRY, Ill.) (WLS) -- Richard Vanecko has turned himself in to McHenry County Jail to begin serving a 60-day sentence for involuntary manslaughter.
Vanecko reached a plea deal late last month in the 2004 death of David Koschman. After a night of drinking, Vanecko threw a single punch that dropped Koschman outside a Division Street bar. Koschman hit his head and died 11 days later.
In exchange for pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter, Vanecko will spend 60 days in jail and 30 months on probation, pay $20,000 restitution, and he has apologized to Koschman's mother.
