Former Zenit volleyball player Khripun arrested in robbery case

The Gagarinsky Court of Moscow sent to a pre-trial detention center for two months the ex-player of the Kazan volleyball club “Zenit” Alexander Khripun, who is accused in a criminal case of robbery on an especially large scale, reports TASS.

“The lawyer's request for a measure of restraint in the form of house arrest was denied,” the press service of the court told the agency.

It is noted that Khripun faces up to seven years in prison with a fine of up to ten thousand rubles.

In 2018, the Solntsevsky Court of Moscow found him guilty of committing two crimes under Part 1 of Art. 1 st. 163 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (“Extortion”). Khripun was sentenced to one year in prison for each crime.

At the same time, for the totality of crimes, by partial addition of the imposed punishments, he was sentenced to imprisonment for a term of one year and six  months on probation with a probationary period of 1.5 years.

Earlier it was reported that the Meshchansky Court of Moscow placed MMA fighter Askhab Magomedov under house arrest, suspected of extorting money from a teenager.
