MOSCOW, January 30 (Itar-Tass) - The Moscow City Court on Wednesday sentenced a member of the Orekhovskaya gang to 23 years in jail in the case over 11 murders committed in 1996 through 1998.
Marat Polyansky pleaded guilty to all the crimes. The case against him was reviewed under special procedure and life imprisonment could not apply.
The prosecutor had demanded 23 years for Polyansky in a maximum security penitentiary. The defendant admitted his crimes, repented and cooperated with the investigators, the prosecutor said.
Polyansky's lawyer sought softer punishment for his client and asked to count in the eight years the defendant had spent in a Spanish prison for carrying firearms.
