Protection of the football player Kokorin appealed against sentence

Alexander Kokorin and his defenders were discordant with the sentence pronounced by court. Lawyers of the football player filed the appeal. The lawyer Vyacheslav Barik representing the interests of the athlete in a conversation with correspondents of RIA Novosti said that the court of first instance incorrectly applied the criminal legislation in this connection the sentence has to be reconsidered. – The court allowed the wrong application of the criminal law that entailed injustice of a sentence and is the basis for its change, – quotes the agency of the interlocutor. Barik specified that the court recognized actions of athletes not falling under category made "by a group of persons by previous concert", however interpretation of "group of persons" all the same appears in the decision. Thus, the party of protection is sure, convicts received unreasonably strict punishment. Let's remind, on May 8 the capital court sentenced Alexander Kokorin and Pavel Mamayev to real terms for beating of two people. According to the judgment, football players will leave one year and five months (minus time spent in the pre-trial detention center) for standard regime penal colonies.
