Sentence of driver who hit two girls at pedestrian zone mitigated
He should serve 1.5 years of imprisonment.
The Moscow City Court mitigated the verdict of 37-year-old Mercedes Gelandewagen driver Alexander Shary, who knocked down 8-year-old twin girls at a pedestrian crossing.
Recall that on June 2, the Nikulinsky Court of the capital recognized Shary guilty under part 1 of Art. 264 of the Criminal Code (Violation of Traffic Rules and Vehicle Operation, which caused serious damage to health) and sentenced to 3 years of imprisonment. Also, a man was deprived of a driver's license for a period of three years.
Today, on July 21, the Moscow City Court mitigated Shary's sentence to 1.5 years of restriction of freedom. The court took into account an extenuating circumstance - the man voluntarily reimbursed the damage and moral damage, transferring about 3 million rubles ($50.800) to the victims' account.
As the CrimeRussia wrote earlier, on December 12, 2016, Alexander Shary, while driving a Mercedes Gelandewagen car, hit two 8-year-old girls at a pedestrian crossing on Mosfilmovskaya Street. At that time, the children crossed the road along with their mother through the pedestrian zone to the traffic light signal. As a result of the incident, the girls were seriously injured. The driver disappeared from the scene. Subsequently, Alexander Shary turned himself in to the police, he repented and expressed a sense of shame for his act.
Yet another scandal involving Boris Dubrovsky is looming in the Chelyabinsk region. The Governor is determined to resettle Uraim and Severny Klyuch villages against the will of their residents. Kolyma Governor Sergei Nosov suggested Dubrovsky to drive the people into bright future with iron hands. In fact, the future is bright mostly for Nosov and Dubrovsky – not for the resettled villagers.
