(Scroll down for video) A man got a light sentence for killing the man who raped him as a child.

Clark Fredericks, 50, of New Jersey, admitted to killing the Boy Scout leader as revenge because the victim raped him several decades earlier.

He received a sentence of five years on Thursday.

Fredericks was sentenced to 5 years in prison, which is the shortest possible time in state prison for passion/provocation manslaughter.

He will be eligible for parole in about nine months with credit for time served. He was jailed in 2012.

Fredericks of Sussex, pleaded guilty to killing 68-year-old Dennis Pegg, who was a former Boy Scout leader and a retired corrections officer.

In his statement in court, Fredericks said that Pegg sexually assaulted and raped him since he was 8 years old until he was 12 years old.

Fredericks told the court that he stood over Pegg and asked “how does it feel to rape little kids,” before he slit his throat.

Sussex County Assistant Prosecutor Greg Mueller and Judge Thomas Critchley agreed that evidence backed up Fredericks’ account that Pegg sexually abused him.

“I do not feel like I am sentencing someone who was committed to a criminal lifestyle. What happened to him as a child made him snap," Critchley said. “It is clear that Mr. Fredericks was exploited, abused and damaged by someone who was in a position of authority,” the judge said at sentencing.

(Scroll down for video) A hungry man was irritated when it took too long for his pizza pie to be delivered.

33-year-old Frank Veltri of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, was arrested after he grabbed the pizza from the driver and refused to pay for the order.

Steven and Nicole Tyukodi, who delivered the order from Pizza Hut on East Carson Street, told police that Veltri grabbed the order and refused to pay, saying that he should get the order for free because it took too long to deliver the food.

Records showed that the order took 49 minutes to arrive. The incident unfolded around 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

When the driver refused to hand over the pizza, wings and breadsticks for free, Veltri grabbed the food from his hands.

Steven and Nicole Tyukodi said that Veltri refused to return the order or pay for the food, and went to his car. He allegedly removed a handgun from the glove compartment of his car, and he threatened the delivery guy with it.

The delivery guy left Veltri’s property and the police were called.

Veltri was arrested and charged with robbery, simple assault and theft by unlawful taking. He was taken to the Allegheny County Jail.

A teacher who was fired from his job for having sex with a student, was awarded $90,000.

The 59-year-old former teacher was awarded $90,000 in compensation after a court ruled that he was “unjustly” fired for having a romantic relationship with his student.

John Martin, who was a teacher at Padua College in Victoria, Australia, began a relationship with his former student Samantha Anderson, when she turned 18 years old.

When the school principal Christopher Houlihan learned about the relationship from the woman's parents, Martin was placed on leave and he was later fired.

Martin taught the woman when she was a young teenager and they began a relationship only when she turned 18.

Martin filed a complaint with the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, claiming that he had been discriminated against and he lost respect from his fellow teachers.

“I find that firing Mr. Martin directly discriminated against him because of his lawful sexual activity with Anderson,” Victorian Civil and Administrative senior member Noreen Megay said.

Martin was awarded $80,000 for loss of wages and another $10,000 for pain and suffering.
