Aleksandrovsky city court found the former head of the department of property and land relations of Karabanovo guilty of embezzlement on a large scale, according to the website of the court.
As it was found during the trial, in 2020, using her official position, the 38-year-old woman had formalized a municipal apartment into the ownership of one of her acquaintances. Then the apartment was sold for 500 thousand rubles, and the money from the transaction ended up at the disposal of the official. As the prosecution found, the official and her friend took a cheap price with the sale of the apartment. The defendant caused damage to the municipality of Karabanovo in the amount of more than one million rubles.

In addition, the woman voluntarily repaid the damage.
As a result, defendant was sentenced to three years imprisonment and a fine of 100 thousand rubles. After serving her sentence, the woman will be forbidden to work in local government for two years.
