ARKHANGELSK, November 13 (Itar-Tass) — The Kotlas town court, Arkhangelsk region, sentenced a patrol officer to 12 months in prison for using an electric shocker on a detainee. Yevgeny Lakhtionov was found guilty of exceeding his authority, the press service of the regional prosecutor's office told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
The court ascertained that on May 12, Lakhtionov used an electric shocker on the detainee as the man was being searched at a police station, then hit him several times and insulted.
The court also placed a two-year ban on Lakhtionov's taking jobs at government bodies after his release from prison.
