Prison employee gets 4.5-year sentence for smuggling drugs into colony
A former employee of the correctional camp No. 14 (IK-14) has been convicted of aiding drug trafficking and exceeding official powers in the Khabarovsk region.
The 36-year-old former junior IK-14 inspector smuggled drugs into IK-14 for an inmate who later sold them, according to findings of specialists made during an investigation and court hearings.
As it turned out, in 2014, the inmate serving a sentence for drug trafficking offered the former employee money for smuggling drugs into the prison. The inspector took the offer; he smuggled 295 grams of hashish oil for the inmate between November 2014 and August 2015. The inmate paid him 114,000 rubles ($1.9 thousand).
The IK-14 employee was charged with violation of articles 286, part 1 (Exceeding Official Powers), 33, part 5 (Complicity in a Crime), and 228, part 2 (Illegal Acquisition, Storage, Transportation, Making or Processing of Narcotic Drugs) of the Russian Criminal Code. He pleaded guilty during the investigation. Court sentenced him to 4.5 years in medium-security prison.
