In Lipetsk region three local residents were convicted for beating a policeman
The court has sentenced three residents of Dobrovský district of Lipetsk region for the beating of a police officer.
According to the Investigative Committee, the staff of Chaplyginsky interdistrict investigative department of the Investigative Committee in the Lipetsk region submitted to the court sufficient evidence to confirm the guilt of three residents of the Dobrovský district. The men were accused of committing a crime under Parts 1, 2 of Article 318 of the Russian Criminal Code (Use of Violence Against a Representative of the Power).
During the investigation of the criminal case and subsequent judicial proceedings it was established that on the night from 13th to 14th January last year, three drunk young men attacked a police officer and beat him. The policeman was on duty - he was in charge of public safety on the territory of the Trubetchino village, Dobrovský region, where temporary refuge to people from Ukraine was established.
It was found out that the police officer was kicked and beaten by young people, causing moderate injury.
Inspite of the fact that during the investigation the defendants did not plead guilty, the investigators conducted a series of actions, including confrontations, lineups and examination of witnesses, which resulted in gathering enough evidence to prove the guilt of young people.
During the trial, the convicts changed their position, regreted their actions and partially compensated the moral damage to the police officer.
The court convicted one of the men to three years on probation. Two others were сondemned to pay a fine of 110 thousand rubles.
