SAMARA, January 11. /TASS/. A court in the Volga city of Samara has sentenced British national Richard Boccius, an employee of Samara Technical University, to three years in prison following detention last August for drug possession, prosecutor’s aide Ulyana Kudinova told TASS on Monday.
Boccius, 32, was initially detained by police when purchasing 3.8 grammes of hashish. A court ruled to deport him from Russia and he was fined 4,000 rubles ($60).
A new case was opened against him after police seized 33 grammes of hashish from his apartment later the same month. Boccius was employed at the Samara university for around 18 months.
