ULAN-UDE, December 25 (Itar-Tass) — A court in the Baikal region sentenced a police officer to three years and eight months in a penal colony for causing a road accident in which a 19-year-old student died, an official at the regional department of the Investigative Committee /SK/ told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
"A former security policeman, Anton Ilyasov, also paid more than 900,000 roubles in damages," the SK official said.
The court ascertained that on October 11, 2011, Isyasov violates the crossroad rule in his Toyota Chaser and collided with a Toytota minibus carrying two young women. The driver, a 19-year-old student, died.
The convicted person's lawyer called the verdict too harsh, whereas the victim's relatives insisted on a longer prison term. Nobody has yet made the decision to appeal the verdict. The case caused a public outcry because of the protracted period of the investigation numerous expert examinations. The public opinion said the long probe was an attempt to help the policeman avoid responsibility.
