MOSCOW, June 20 (Itar-Tass) - The Ulyanovsk region court sentenced a former judge to 5.5 years in a penal colony for causing a fatal road accident," the injured parties' lawyer told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
"The court said the defendant's guilt has been proven and sentenced him to 5.5 years in a penal colony," lawyer Alexei Glukhov said.
On January 22, 2011, Valery Sas, a judge of the Shelkovsky town court, Moscow region, in a state of alcoholic intoxication, drove his Toyota Highlander into an oncoming lane and collided with a VAZ-211240. The VAZ driver and a female passenger were killed on the spot.
The former judge was found guilty under Article 264, Part 6 of Russia's penal code /violation of traffic rules which resulted in death of two persons/.
After his release from prison, his driving license will be suspended for three years.
Sas was not taken in custody in the courtroom. He will have to report to the penitentiary on his own to start serving his sentence.
