Moscow's Lyublinsky court has dropped criminal prosecution of Muscovite Alexandra Ivannikova
Moscow's Lyublinsky court has dropped criminal prosecution of Muscovite Alexandra Ivannikova who had killed a man when defending herself against attempted indecent assault. Under the Russian legislation, the court has to drop prosecution if prosecutors drop charges. Earlier, the prosecutors at the trial asked to acquit Ivannikova. Her lawyer hailed the verdict as "fair." The lawyer of the injured party - the man's father - said he did not know yet if they would appeal the Friday ruling. On July 2, Moscow's Lyublinsky court gave Ivannikova a two-year suspended sentence, finding her guilty of murder in affective state. According to investigators, she thumbed down a car on December 8, 2003 and asked the driver to take her to her home for 100 roubles. When she was in the car, the driver assaulted her. The woman, acting in self-defense, stabbed the man in the leg, and he died of a loss of blood. The court took into account the mitigating circumstances, including the fact that Ivannikova had an infant. It also ruled that Ivannikova must pay 50,000 roubles to the victims' relatives in moral compensation and 156,000 roubles in material compensation. On July 4, the Moscow City Court overturned the verdict and ordered to reopen the investigation.
