Porn star Robert Van Damme may have been deported last year to serve a 10-year prison sentence in the Czech Republic, but don’t worry, the convicted armed robber and muscular gay-for-payer has been granted a re-trial and could be walking free before the end of the month.
This is the best Google Translate could offer (via an anonymous tipster), but here’s the gist: Basically, because Van Damme (legal name Robert Kovarik) wasn’t present during his violent armed robbery trial, conviction, and sentencing, a Czech Republic Regional Court has granted him a re-trial. Of course, the only reason Van Damme wasn’t present for his trial and his sentencing was because he had illegally fled to the United States to become a gay-for-pay porn star and allegedly beat his American wife, so there’s that.
Van Damme’s re-trial is set for September 16th:
New trial of Robert Kovařík is coming. “The trial will be held on Monday 16 and Tuesday, the 17th September, “she Večerník spokesperson of the Regional Court in Brno Miroslava Sedláčková. Prostějovský native and former member of the local hockey team, Robert Kovarik was after his flight to the U.S. convicted of robbery to ten years in prison. The court may sentence him now either confirm or reduce.
Robert Kovarik can already prepare festive claws. On Monday, 16 September escort him to bring them from Brno Remand Prison before the Regional Court of Appeal in the capital of Moravia. Kovarik have had a recent deportation from the United States requested the renewal process. A court granted his request. The original process is held in Kováříkova absence. Now everything will again Prostějovský a former hockey player in the process will already be able to attend.
“At the end of June this year the Brno Regional Court quashed the judgment, which was Robert Kovarik sentenced to ten years imprisonment. The trial, including evidence will be over and it was in the presence of the accused, “said Miroslav Sedláčková with that Kovarik can only do better. “The new management can not be changed decision against the accused,” explained Sedláčková.
Robert Kovarik in his defense before the Regional Court in Brno probably uncover behind the scenes Prostejov underworld of time ten years and more. After his escape to the United States had not been for all of his former cronies problem seduce all the blame just on him. Against this, however, Kovarik in the past on several occasions he said. In Prostejov and still lives nearby so many people who are afraid of what famous former car thief in court giveaway …
His willingness to reveal new and important facts about the armed robbery should undoubtedly take into account also the Brno Regional Court of Appeal. Now he will decide on the amount and type of Kováříkova new sentence.
If I read the last part of that translation correctly, it sounds like Van Damme will be throwing his former mob cronies under the bus and snitching on them in exchange for a lighter sentence? I can’t wait till he’s back in the states filming for Men.com.
