In the Rostov region, a lawyer received a suspended sentence for fraud :: News

The Federal Security Service of Russia for the Rostov Region documented and suppressed the illegal activities of Evgeny Puzarin, a lawyer of the Bar Association of the Rostov Region, who was involved in fraud. This was reported today by the press service of the regional department of the law enforcement agency.

So, on April 11, 2022, as a result of the operational-search measures taken, Puzarin was detained red-handed by officers of the Federal Security Service of Russia in the Rostov Region when receiving 260,000 rubles for mediation in bribery, namely, in transferring money from the convict in his interests as a bribe to an unidentified person from among the officials of the Ust-Donetsk District Court of the Rostov Region. Thus, a citizen serving a sentence in a correctional colony counted on assistance in satisfying his petition to change the type of punishment for him from deprivation of liberty to corrective labor.

Based on the materials of the Federal Security Service of Russia for the Rostov Region, the regional Investigative Committee of the Investigative Committee of Russia initiated a criminal case against lawyer Puzarin under Part 5 of Art. 291.1 of the Criminal Code of Russia “Mediation in bribery”.

The Voroshilovsky District Court of Rostov-on-Don qualified the actions of the defendant Puzarin under Part 3 of Art. 30 (attempt to commit a crime) and part 3 of article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation “Fraud”, found guilty of committing this crime and sentenced him to two years and six months of suspended imprisonment. The verdict came into force.
