for which the innocent Russian Dmitry Rubinstein spent more than six months in prison. The former law enforcement officer will go to the colony for five years and six months. This was reported to “Lente.ru” in the press service of the regional department of the Investigative Committee of Russia.
The ex-employee of the Ministry of Internal Affairs was found guilty under part 2 of Article 299 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (“Bringing a knowingly innocent person to criminal responsibility”) and part 3 of Article 303 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (“Falsification of evidence”).
It was established that on June 5, 2019, near a house on Gvardeyskaya Street, policemen detained a 26-year-old local resident Alexander Studentov on suspicion of possession of drugs. He introduced himself to the siloviki by the name of his half-brother Dmitry Rubinstein.
On July 23 of the same year, Studentov was taken to the investigator. There, one of the officers recognized the accused and told a colleague that the young man was impersonating another. However, the investigator ignored this fact, and then personally eliminated all contradictions in the materials of the criminal case, in particular, destroyed the first interrogation protocol.
Under the name of his brother, Students were able to receive a suspended sentence and then escape. For violating the conditions of serving a suspended sentence, his brother, Rubinstein, was sent to jail. After a public outcry, the forgery was exposed, and the Russian was released. He spent more than six months in prison.
Now the investigator himself will go to jail. He will serve his sentence in a general regime colony.
