YEKATERINBURG, May 16 (Itar-Tass) — The Zheleznodorozhny district court of Yekaterinburg on Wednesday sentenced police officer Andrei Pyatkov to 7.5 years in a maximum security penitentiary for beating a detainee to death.

Pyatkov was found guilty under the Criminal Code articles on "misuse of office powers" and "causing serious harm to health which resulted in the victim's dearth by negligence," the press service of the department of the Prosecutor General's Office for the Ural Federal District told Itar-Tass.

"In March 2011, an unmounted police post under Senior Lieutenant Pyatkov's command brought a drunken local resident to a police station. The police never drew a document of administrative offense on the man. He was placed in the room for detainees arrested for administrative crimes, and insulted the police.

Pyatkov used it as a pretext to beat him up. An ambulance that arrived at the scene stated that the man had died, the press service said.
