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.
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
