A former CIA contractor convicted of beating an Afghan detainee who later died has been sentenced to eight years and four months in prison. David Passaro was convicted last year of felony assault. U.S. District Court judge Terrence Boyle said a lack of an autopsy probably kept Passaro from being charged with murder. Passaro used a flashlight to hit Abdul Wali and kicked him in the groin during a two day interrogation at a remote military base in Afghanistan in July 2003.
