Goa legislator convicted for mild charges
South Goa's District and Sessions Court has mellowed down state legislator Francisco Pacheco's conviction for assault on a government servant to simple hurt.
The quantum of sentence will be pronounced on next date.
The Court had upheld his conviction and sentenced him to six months imprisonment for assaulting junior engineer of state electricity department Kapil Natekar in 2007.
He then filed a revision petition before the same court seeking to quash his conviction.
The order comes a day after he organised a big bash on his birthday yesterday.
