YAROSLAVL, April 16 – RIA Novosti. A blogger in the Tula region received a year and eight months in a maximum security penal colony for hijacking an unlocked car for the sake of filming a video and publishing it on the Internet, the regional prosecutor's office said.
The incident took place on the night of February 12 this year. “An unemployed resident of Kireevsk, taking advantage of the fact that the driver of the parked car left the vehicle without locking it, entered the car, started it and started driving. Seeing the driver leaving the cafe, the hijacker left the interior of the car and disappeared. The attacker filmed everything that was happening on a mobile phone camera for further publication on the Internet, “the message says. At the same time, as a representative of the supervisory agency explained to RIA Novosti, he did not manage to upload the video to the network.
The blogger, as the prosecutor's office calls the young man, was accused of stealing without the purpose of stealing. It is noted that the young man was previously convicted. “The court took into account the opinion of the public prosecutor and sentenced the defendant to one year and eight months of imprisonment in a strict regime colony. The court's verdict has not entered into legal force,” the prosecutor's office informs.
