Not the first accident
On June 29, 2017, early in the morning, a 17-year-old Krasnodar without a license knocked down road workers near Dzerzhinsky and Talalikhina streets. A teenager driving a parental Land Rover ignored warning signs about road repairs and crashed into a Gazelle. The foreign car burned down from the impact, but the driver managed to get out of the car.
Then, as a result of the accident, five workers were injured, one of them, a 40-year-old man, died. It is also known that the teenager was drunk. Later it turned out that the culprit was Alexander Semenov, the son of the former head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for Krasnodar, Alexander Semenov, and the ex-deputy of the City Duma, Olga Semenova.
Semenov Jr. in November 2018 was found guilty under Part 4 of Art. 264 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (violation of traffic rules, negligently resulting in the death of a person). The guy was sentenced to three years in prison in a colony-settlement with the deprivation of a driver’s license for one year.
Semenov’s classmates told 93.RU that the guy visited couples all the time, despite the verdict. For a while he went to classes with a bracelet on his leg – probably at that time he was under house arrest. Young people believe that Semyonov did not actually serve his sentence.
