@SinCityJet: He has been released already
Federal Judge Dale Kimball sentenced him to one year and one day in prison, with credit for time served.
The sentence “sends a clear message of deterrence to others that similar conduct will be prosecuted,” the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Utah said in a statement sent to RFE/RL.
As Tishchenko has been held more than 12 months in federal custody, he was released to Homeland Security agents for deportation, according to a court filing.
“Defendant shall be released into the custody of Homeland Security agents today, 6/19/2019, and they will transport Defendant to the Salt Lake International Airport for self-deportation to Russia,” the filing stated.
Typical for ED to try and keep this a secret for all this time, because why not only put out a fire when the place has burned down?
Still, i'm glad for Oleg for his expedient return back home, US penitentiaries aren't very hospitable places and 12 months in another country seem more than enough punishment for being an idiot. Props to his attorney as well.
