The Simonovsky court of the capital pronounced a verdict on the mixed martial arts fighter Alexander Emelyanenko. The athlete received 4.5 years in a penal colony.
Emelianenko was convicted of raping a woman who cleaned his apartment. He was also accused of inclining the victim to use drugs, but the prosecutor's office decided to drop this part of the charge. The prosecutor demanded for Emelianenko five years in prison and a fine of 60 thousand rubles. As a result, he received a slightly shorter term of imprisonment, and as a fine he must pay 50 thousand rubles.
