KRASNOYARSK, December 26 (Itar-Tass) — The prosecutor of the Boguchany district, Krasnoyarsk Territory, suspected of extorting a bribe, pleaded guilty and signed a plea bargain agreement.
"Roman Lychkovsky gave a detailed account of the crime he had committed and signed a plea bargain agreement," the regional department of the Investigative Committee /SK/ told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
The prosecutor was detained on suspicion of taking a large bribe. The investigator said he had met with a commercial firm director in November 2012 to inform him that the district prosecutors had been checking his firm for compliance with the environmental protection legislation. He demanded 500,000 roubles for dropping the check. The businessman agreed to pay 300,000 roubles. The prosecutor was detained in a sting operation and arrested for two months. His 2.5-million-rouble jeep was impounded.
"If Lychkovsky meets all the terms of the plea bargain agreement, the punishment cannot exceed half the maximum jail term," the SK said.
