SACRAMENTO (AP) - A 22-year-old Sacramento man has been sentenced to 150 days in jail for his role in the death of a Fijian immigrant.
Shevchenko was convicted in June of disturbing the peace and simple assault for throwing a bottle during a confrontation last summer between two groups at Lake Natoma, about 15 miles east of Sacramento.
Jurors deadlocked on a hate crimes charge that accused Shevchenko of starting a fight with Satender (SAH-ten-dur) Singh because he believed Singh was gay.
Singh died last July, four days after he was allegedly hit by another man in Shevchenko's group, Andrey Vusik (VOO-sik).
Investigators believe Vusik has fled the country and is wanted by the FBI.
