RENO, Nev. (AP) - A former security guard at a Reno casino lounge will serve at least six months in jail after he pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the death of a man he threw to the ground during a disturbance at the club in December 2013.

Stefan Johnson originally was charged with second-degree murder in the death of 23-year-old Victor Victoria-Acevedo at the Eldorado’s BuBinga Lounge during a Santa Crawl celebration.

The Reno Gazette Journal reports (https://tinyurl.com/pyr3s28) as part of a plea agreement accepted in April, Johnson also most pay $5,000 in restitution.

Washoe District Judge David Hardy said at Johnson’s sentencing last week that if he violates the terms of his subsequent probation he’ll be subject to the maximum penalty of up to four years in prison.
