From the Los Angeles Times:

After pleading no contest to a misdemeanor domestic violence charge earlier this month, Kings defenseman Slava Voynov is spending part of his summer in the Seal Beach Police Detention Center.

The Seal Beach city attorney confirmed Tuesday that Voynov started serving his 90-day sentence in the city’s facility July 7.
