The court found the man guilty of committing a crime under article «driving with a person in a state of intoxication». While earlier, the defendant was twice brought to trial under the same article, and he was twice appointed punishment in the form of compulsory work.

«Criminal cases in this category are considered by the courts in our region but, as a rule, the penalty shall be not connected with real imprisonment, because the law considers this crime to the category of small gravity, and maximum sanctions of the relevant article of the criminal code provide for up to two years of imprisonment. However, in this case, given that defendant has not embarked on the path of correction and for the third time drink driving, the court sentenced to real imprisonment,» said Tushkevich.
