Russian who shot a child instead of a goose gets off with a fine

The court imposed a fine on a resident of Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug who accidentally shot a schoolboy in the head

The official group of Ugra courts on the social network VKontakte reports that the Berezovsky District Court imposed a fine of 30 thousand rubles on a resident of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug, who shot a child, mistaking him for a bird. It is noted that the judge took into account the fact that the man accidentally injured the student due to poor eyesight.

The publication states that an elderly man was riding a boat with his granddaughter and saw birds on the water that seemed to him to be ducks or geese, after which he shot at them, but it later turned out that he hit the child in the head. The defendant explained what happened by saying that he had poor eyesight, which was confirmed by medical documents, so the court reclassified the actions of the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug resident as part 1 of Article 118 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (“Causing grievous bodily harm through negligence”), and he was sentenced to a fine of 30 thousand rubles .

It is clarified that the man himself delivered the injured child to the village to the paramedic and repented of his crime. Doctors confirmed that one eye of the convict sees at 10%, and the other at 20%. The Yugra resident also compensated for moral damages to the student’s mother, paying her half a million rubles.
