MOSCOW, July 4 (Itar-Tass) - The Moscow region court on Thursday sentenced former Khimki administration official Andrei Chernyshev to six years in a general regime penitentiary for masterminding two attacks on environmentalist Konstantin Fetisov.
The sentence was passed on the strength of a jury verdict. A majority of jurors found Fetisov to be the mastermind behind the attacks. The same verdict cleared two other suspects who the investigators said were members of the organized group that organized the attack.
A majority of jurors found Chernyshev guilty, but insisted on clemency. Fetisov was attacked twice - on September 18 and November 4, 2010. After the second attack, Fetisov was rushed to an IT ward and was in coma for some time.
The prosecutor demanded 6.5 years for Fetisov - the maximum term the court could mete out in the case.
Two other defendants - Vyacheslav Kovalyov and Maxim Kriventsov - were not involved, the jurors said. They were released from custody after the verdict had been read.
On November 13, 2012, the Moscow region court sentenced Andrei Kashirin to four years in jail for attacking Fetisov. He was found guilty of attempted murder, instigation and abetting battery.
