KHABAROVSK, March 7 (Itar-Tass) — On Wednesday a court in the Amur region gave a suspended sentence to the former deputy director of a penal colony Sergei Zychkov for beating female inmates.

The penal colony is located in the village of Priozerny.

"The court, in addition to giving him a three-year-and-eight-month suspended sentence, also banned Zychkov from taking the jobs of government representative for 1.5 years, with four-year probation," a regional prosecutor told Itar-Tass.

Senior aide to the director of the regional department of the Investigative Committee Alexei Lubinsky said the investigators ascertained that the "defendant used physical force on three female inmates." The video of a beating episode was placed on the Internet in October 2011."

In his final statement, Zychkov pleaded guilty and asked the injured parties to forgive him. "I'm ashamed," he said, "what had happened became a tragedy for my family."
