Omega sentenced to five years in jail
National District judges have sentenced merengue singer Antonio Peter de la Rosa, who is known by his artistic name Omega, to five years in jail after being found guilty of domestic violence towards his partner Sahira Valerio in the presence of children.
However, the court partially suspended his sentence for four years and four months. As Omega has already served eight months in jail, he will return for two months before being set free on conditional release for the rest of his sentence.
The judges made the decision as requested by the National District Prosecution Service.
As part of his sentence, during the next five years, Omega must abstain from alcohol abuse, be supervised by a Men’s Behavioral Center and attend their programs, undertake a course on Emotional Intelligence beginning in January 2017, not travel overseas without judicial authorization, not use any type of firearm, carry out 120 hours of community service, and abstain from molesting, intimidating, threatening or attacking the victim.
The judge warned that if any of these rules are broken, Omega will have to serve the full five-year sentence.
