The Batumi City Court sentenced the detainee for sexual action towards 8 year old child to imprisonment as a preventive measure. The session was held in closed regime. As the defendant's attorney stated, he does not recognize his guilty offense and intends to appeal the decision. According to the lawyer, there is a contradiction between the mother and the 8-year-old girl testimonials.
A 28-year-old man was detained on the basis of a judge's decision several days ago. The case relates to a 8-year-old girl's mother's statement that her husband was trying to commit a murderer in one of the hotels, which is the owner of the same hotel. The representatives of the Public Defenderare involved in the social agency and psychologists. The accused is a citizen of Ukraine and arrived in Georgia several years ago.
