A Dutch court on Monday jailed six teenage boys and a father for up to six years for brutally beating to death an amateur linesman in a case that shocked the football-mad nation. 

The widow of football linesman Richard van Nieuwenhuizen leaves the courthouse of Lelystad, Netherlands on June 17, 2013. The court on Monday jailed six teenage boys and a father for up to six years for brutally beating to death the amateur linesman last year.
