According to her, neither the accuser nor the defendant has appealed the sentence of April 3, 2015.

As PenzaNews agency reported earlier, the case was investigated by the Penza FSB department.

The court has found that Alexei Agafilov who was heading the Penza Department of Urban Amenities, got acquainted with high-ranking officials in the city administration and has developed a criminal scheme that would allow him to obtain ownership rights to a land plot of 10,402 sq. meters that would normally cost over 31 million rubles.

To do that, he has submitted falsified documents that served as a proof of a nonexistent debt to him from the Penza city administration which that land plot was allegedly covering.

The accused denied being involved in the crime.

The court took into account the fact that Alexei Agafilov has three underage children and had fully recovered the material damages on his own accord.

Following the court verdict, Alexei Agafilov is banned to work on jobs that involve administrative and management deeds in the regional self-government bodies and municipal institutions for three years.
