MOSCOW, January 17 (RAPSI) – A court in Russia’s Saratov Region has sentenced a former head and a former chief accountant of one of the local penal colonies to 4 and 3 years in custody respectively for embezzling over 18 million budget rubles ($300,000), the press service of the Prosecutor General’s Office reports.

The sentence of the colony’s chief accountant is suspended until the convict’s child reaches the age of 14.
