Police detain Olga Alisova, who ran over "drunk" boy in Balashikha
Investigators intend to go to court with a motion to imprison Olga Alisova, who had previously been under a written undertaking not to leave the town.
Law enforcement officers detained Olga Alisova, who is accused of running over a 6-year-old "drunk" boy in Balashikha. The woman had previously been under a written undertaking not to leave the town after the high-profile incident.
Ministry of Internal Affairs stated in a press release that the decision to detain Alisova was associated with the fact that she had broken the rules prescribed by the earlier verdict. Now the investigators intend to petition for her imprisonment.
We shall remind that Olga Alisova is charged under part 3 of Art. 264 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Violation of Traffic Rules and Rules for Operation of Transport Vehicles which has, by negligence, entailed a human death).
Additionally, Roman Shimko, the father of the deceased child, was recognized as a victim in the negligence case (Art. 293 of the Criminal Code). It was initiated after a forensic medical examination showed 2.7 per mille of alcohol in Alyosha Shimko’s blood. Lawyers defending the boy's father had been trying to get the "victim" status for their client, as this way he would be able to submit petitions and get acquainted with the case file, unlike with the “witness” status. Besides, it will allow asking for exhumation of the child's body for re-examination if it is required. The case of negligence was passed on to the central office of the Investigative Committee. According to Life, it was Colonel Yuri Lavretsky who took it up (he previously ran the case of the "school shooter" from Otradny).
The tragedy occurred in Zheleznodorozhny district of Balashikha on April 23. Olga Alisova, 31, was driving a Hyundai Solaris in a courtyard of an apartment building, when she knocked down Alyosha Shimko, a boy of 6. The boy died on the spot. According to eyewitnesses, the car was moving at a speed of about 50-60 km/h, and the woman was talking on the phone, while Alisova claims that the child jumped under the car.
The incident shocked the public and received a lot of media coverage when the boy's parents got the results of the forensic medical examination in June that stated that 2.7 ppm of alcohol was found in the child's blood, which corresponds to a strong intoxication.
Former traffic cop Mikhail Saplinov was sentenced to life in prison for murdering two young women. The trial was held in the Belgorod region in February. The defendant pleaded guilty. However, he refused to share where he buried the victims…or could not do that. The 2015 trial of Vladimir Koen hailing from Vladivostok made the headlines. He was given a 9-year custodial sentence for murdering his ex-girlfriend that had gone missing in 2011. Her body has never been found. The CrimeRussia tells a story of two murder convicts who could be innocent.
