MOSCOW, October 28 (Itar-Tass) —— The Moscow city court has sentenced six defendants in the criminal case of the murder of Spartak soccer club fan Yegor Sviridov to prison terms ranging five to twenty years.
Aslan Cherkesov got twenty years in a tight security prison. The jurors found him guilty of premeditated murder of Yegor Sviridov, infliction of light bodily harm and robbery. The other five men accused, who were found guilty of hooliganism and infliction of light bodily harm, got smaller prison terms.
The ruling was pronounced by judge Andrei Rasnovsky. He read out the sentence in the criminal case earlier on Friday. On October 20 the jurors brought in a verdict of guilty for all six defendants in the Sviridov murder case. Also, they ruled that none of them deserved clemency.
