DENVER, United States: Raymond Davis, a former CIA contractor who killed two Pakistanis in January 2011, pleaded guilty on Friday to assaulting a Colorado man named Jeff Maes.
Davis gave Maes third-degree assault in a dispute over a parking spot in the Denver suburb of Highlands Ranch in October 2011, prosecutors said.
Maes and his family got to a parking spot first and parked in it. A witness told police that Davis then confronted Maes and said, “I was waiting for that spot and it wasn’t right for you to take it.” When Maes refused to move Davis struck Maes.
According to Reuters, Davis received a two-year probationary sentence, said Lisa Pinto, spokeswoman for the district attorney’s office.
Pinto said Davis was also ordered to take anger management classes and write a letter of apology to the victim.
In January 2011, Davis shot and killed two men in Pakistani city of Lahore whom he said were trying to rob him.
Davis, who was working in Pakistan at the time under a CIA contract with Xe Services, the controversial private security firm formerly known as Blackwater, said he acted in self-defense.
He was acquitted of murder and allowed to leave Pakistan after a $2.3 million payment was made to the men’s families.
