Moscow, March 13 – The Supreme Court of the Russian Federation has released a man convicted of a drunken accident that claimed the life of his wife so that he can raise his children, according to the ruling of the Judicial College for Criminal Cases.
According to the case file, a resident of the Altai Territory was driving drunk from the guests at night with his wife, who was sitting in the passenger seat. At some point, he lost control, crashed into a station, pulled down a fence and entered a private home. The driver survived by breaking his wrist and his wife died on the spot.
He fully admitted his guilt, compensated for material and moral damage, and the court sent him to a settlement colony for three years. But it turned out that there was no one to take the two children with the couple to bring them up – their grandmother lives abroad.
As a result, the lawyer reached the Supreme Court, seeking a reprieve. The mother of the deceased noted that the convict is “a good family man, and the children have already been left without a mother, so she does not want her grandchildren to lose their father and grow up in an orphanage.”
As a result, the court released the convict from the colony and postponed the sentence until his youngest son was 14 years old.
In Russia, the number of accidents of drunk drivers has decreased
