VORONEZH, October 28. /TASS/. The Borisoglebsk Inter-District Prosecutor’s Office has appealed the court decision to release MMA fighter Alexander Emelianenko convicted of rape on parole, Chairman of the City Court of Borisoglebsk (central European Russia), Nikolai Karatayev, informed TASS on Friday.
"On October 27, the Borisoglebsk Inter-District Prosecutor’s Office appealed the court ruling to release MMA fighter Alexander Emelianenko on parole. Shortly before the end of the working day on Thursday, we received an appeal request from the prosecutor’s office," he said.
If the Borisoglebsk Inter-District Prosecutor’s Office had not appealed the court ruling, Emelianenko would have been released from prison on October 28, 2016.
Last year, a Moscow court sentenced former MMA Champion Emelianenko to four and a half years in prison after it found him guilty of aggravated sexual assault on his housekeeper and also of stealing her passport. The court also ordered a fine of 50,000 rubles ($1,000 at that time’s exchange rate).
According to investigators, Emelianenko, 35, raped his housekeeper Polina Stepanova in March 2014 and stole her passport. Police detained him two months later in the southern Russian city of Tambov after a car accident he was involved in.
Emelianenko's professional mixed martial arts career record offers impressive figures of 23 wins (15 KOs, 5 by submission) and seven losses (3 KOs, 4 by submission). He is also a three-time Russian Sambo champion and three-time world Combat Sambo champion in the absolute division.
