Russian dancer Pavel Dmitrichenko was sentenced to six years in prison on Tuesday for his role in an acid attack that nearly blinded the artistic director of the Bolshoi Ballet. A Moscow judge announced the sentence after convicting 29-year-old Dmitrichenko and two co-defendants in the attack last January on Sergei Filin, which exposed toxic rivalries at the Bolshoi Theatre and damaged its reputation.
