His conclusion caused a nation-wide public outcry. After media drew attention to th etragedy, a criminal case was initiated. Alisova was found guilty and sentenced to three years’ imprisonment in a colony settlement, as well as 2.5-million-ruble ($37,914) compensation to the victims.
Forensic expert Mikhail Kleymenov was accused of negligence. Because of the numerous interviews in which the expert called the child drunk, Alesha’s father Roman Shimko also tried to initiate a criminal case under Libel against the man.
