Esteban Nunez, 22, pleaded guilty last May (10) to voluntary manslaughter and assault stemming from the fatal stabbing of student Luis Santos during a brawl near San Diego State University in 2008.

He was handed a 16-year sentence - but on Sunday (02Jan11) Schwarzenegger cut the term to seven years.

The Terminator star described the sentence as "excessive" as Nunez didn't inflict the fatal stab wound, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Schwarzenegger is leaving the Californian office on Monday (03Jan11).
