MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The Magadan City Court passed a sentence in a criminal case against Lyubov Korotkova. She was convicted of committing crimes under Part 4 of Art. 159.2 (fraud in the receipt of payments), paragraph “b” of Part 2 of Art. 165 (causing property damage to the owner of the property by deception in the absence of signs of theft, causing especially large damage), Art. 156 (non-fulfillment of obligations on the upbringing of a minor), p. “B” part 2 of art. 111 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (intentional infliction of grievous bodily harm, dangerous to human life, committed against a minor, with particular cruelty, mockery and torture for the victim).
The court found that Korotkov, together with his spouse, in December 2008, issued custody of a minor child to receive benefits, compensation and other social benefits provided by law. In this case, the money he intended to spend not on the child, but to kidnap. Husband did not suspect her intention.
After that, the woman did not fulfill the parental duties assigned to her for 8 years, systematically deprived the child of food, and also fed laxative medications, causing the child not to grow and gain weight.
Thus, Korotkova artificially formed in the child a clinical picture and symptoms of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. In this connection, the minor was recognized as a disabled child. Thanks to this, the attacker received additional social benefits.
As a result of these actions, the child suffered serious harm to health, and the federal and regional budgets suffered damage in the amount of more than 4 million rubles.
The court sentenced Korotkov to 6 years in prison with a sentence being served in a general-regime correctional colony.
The court also satisfied the civil lawsuit filed by the regional prosecutor’s office in defense of the interests of the Russian Federation for recovery from Korotkova in favor of the budget of damage caused by the crime in the amount of more than 1.4 million rubles, as well as a civil lawsuit for collecting in favor of the minor monetary compensation for moral harm in the amount of 1 million rubles.
The verdict has not entered into force.
