Former 130-pound titleholder Jorge Barrios is out of prison despite being sentenced to four years behind bars for a hit-and-run crash in Argentina that killed a pregnant woman and her unborn child, according to the Buenos Aires Herald.

Barrios paid $200,000 last week to secure his release, the terms of which have him “not allowed to leave his house for periods of over 24 hours and [he] cannot exit the country without a court authorization,” the newspaper reported. “He is, however, allowed to drive and is required to report to a police station every week.”

He was sentenced to prison just this April on charges stemming from a January 2010 incident in which Barrios struck one car, then ran over a group of pedestrians, then hit another car, according to the article.

Barrios, 35, last fought in October 2010, a win that brought his record to 50-4-1 with 35 knockouts and 1 no contest.

Money talks anywhere, but how the hell do you bail out after sentencing?

what a disgrace, a slap in the face to the family of the deceased woman and unborn child.

[QUOTE=Mr. Ryan]So basically, he's on probation now? This is ridiculous. That money should go to the family. And he's allowed to drive too?[/QUOTE] It's essentially like a combination of probation and being out of bail, from what I infer.

In Argentina the price for walking away from Manslaughter is 200k?? so now all the rich and famouse with dead wishes know where to go.

Injustice. Floyd Mayweather Jr's "slap on the wrist" looks like a death sentence compared to this. Floyd got nothing on Money Barrios.
