The officer received prison time and has to pay a $ 22,000.
Volgograd’s Garrison Court sentenced Lieutenant Colonel Yury Shushkov to four years in a strict regime penal colony and a fine of 1.44 million rubles ($ 22,000) for taking a bribe on a large scale, exceeding official powers and forgery. He issued bonuses to subordinates from which he later received a certain amount, V1.ru reports.
According to the investigation, in total Shushkov received 360,000 rubles ($ 5,600). In the course of the investigation, the law enforcement bodies initiated 15 more criminal cases, including the one against Shushkov’s subordinate named Nestroyevy. However, later the criminal case was terminated, as Nestroyevy helped the investigation.
The court imposed a security arrest on Shushkov’s Mercedes-Benz E200, and also prohibited the defendant from taking posts related to the implementation of administrative functions for three years. The defense team intends to appeal the verdict.
