Luciano “Tortuga” sentenced to 6 years supervised release (Chile)
Today August 15, at 1PM, in the Oral Penal Court of Santiago they dictated the sentence against Luciano.
Room 901 of the court, made up of the judges Mauricio Olave (president), Graciela Gómez (redactora) and Antonio Ulloa (integrante and who voted to apply the anti-terrorist law), sentenced Luciano Pitronello Schuffeneger for the crimes of “illegal transport of explosives,” “damages” (to the bank)” and “use of false license plate.”
The imposed sentenced was:
- For the damages to the Santander Bank: 41 months imprisonment in the highest degree, suspension of public office or employment for the duration of the sentence.
- For the possession of explosive device: 3 years and 1 day of imprisonment in the highest degree, and also complete disqualification from political rights and public offices and employment for the duration of the sentence.
- For driving a vehicle with another person’s license plate: 541 days of imprisonment in the highest degree, suspension of public office or employment for the duration of the sentence and suspension of driver’s license for the duration of 3 years.
Since the sentences did not amount to more than 5 years and due to not have prior criminal history, in the end the tribunal granted “supervised freedom” for 6 years. Therefore Luciano will not have to return to prison and will be under the supervision of a delegate (whether psychologist or social worker) of the police, who will make periodic evaluations of Luciano.
For their part, the Southern Prosecution of the Ministry of the Interior immediately reacted with frustration after the reading of the sentence, adding that they will examine the sentence in order to request the nullification of the trial before the Court of Appeals, for which there is a period of 10 days. The Prosecution will rely on the vote of the judge Antonio Ulloa, who was the minority vote in the decision about the application of the anti-terrorist law against Luciano.
