MOSCOW, May 13. /ITAR-TASS/. A Moscow region court has convicted seven girls, four of them minors, for beating a disabled girl from the same village. Four were jailed and another three were given suspended sentences.
They were found guilty of robbery, battery and involving a minor in crimes, Investigative Committee official Olga Vradij told ITAR-TASS, noting the group had regularly abused the girl, from the Moscow region village of Kalininets.
"The girls caught her on the way to a shop and beat her up. They dragged her to a wooded area to continue the beating. One took the victim's mobile phone and later pawned it," the official said.
The victim was taken to hospital with multiple injuries and had her spleen removed after "a cynical and cold-blooded crime which caused public outcry." Vradij said. Investigators had questioned more than 60 witnesses and carried out 18 interrogations.
Natalya Mizgireva, 21, was sentenced to five-and-a-half years in a general regime penitentiary, Tatyana Dukhovnaya was given 18 months and Yevgeniya Manukyan a delayed three years in prison. Three underage attackers were given two- to three-year suspended sentences while the fourth minor received three years and one month in a correctional facility.
The court ordered the girls to pay the victim one million rubles in damages.
