The military court sentenced him to 4 years in a settlement colony.

Senior technician of the Federal Security Service Academy Artur Khairullin used to sell out processors and memory modules of computers of the governmental agency on free advertisements’ web sites Avito and Yula. Kommersant reports that during a year, the junior officer managed to break down more than 500 computer cases and left the school’s number one department with no computers. He earned 7.273 million rubles ($113 thousand).

According to the newspaper, in August, 2017, Khairullin was appointed an executive in charge of a few hundreds of computers of the department of foreign languages that were set up in new units before students and teachers moved there. On October 15, 2018, the junior officer told a deputy head of the department he did not manage to save the property. By the time, he had sold out components of all computers - 430 Intel processors and 505 memory modules.

The junior officer says he sold the processors and memory modules for 20-25 thousand rubles ($313-391) each. With that, the technician reports that at the first stage, he was going to buy and return what had been stolen - when he would earn the money. For this purpose, he made bets in a bookmaker’s office, but did not win anything. He spent all the money on his family’s needs.

Due to the fact that there was full confession and the man facilitated solving the crime, as well as due to good conduct certificate from the service, the court reclassified the crime from serious to a crime of medium gravity and sentenced him to 4 years in a settlement colony. With that, the convict has to reach the correctional facility on his own, and the time he would spent on the road will be counted.
