Case of Interest: Dmitri Kryshchendyuk & Pavel Dubinetsky

DATE: May 18, 2015

CASE: Dmitri Kryshchendyuk & Pavel Dubinetsky

PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Kevin Higgins, Consumer & Environmental Protection Unit

District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert announced that the Honorable Robert Twiss ordered Dmitri Kryshchendyuk and Pavel Dubinetsky to pay $330,398 in restitution to the state of California for the estimated cost of remediation of environmental damage to Steelhead Creek in the Rio Linda area of Sacramento County. 

On November 13, 2014, a jury convicted the defendants of Fish & Game Code violations for water pollution and unlawful streambed alteration.  They were also convicted of County Code violations relating to the placement of fill materials, including dirt, sand, asphalt, concrete and construction debris into Steelhead Creek.  Steelhead Creek is a tributary of the Sacramento River and thoroughfare for protected species of fish, including Steelhead Trout and Chinook Salmon.

On December 12, 2014, the defendants were ordered to do 500 hours of community service.  If they fail to complete those hours of service in 18 months, they will have to serve 60 days in county jail.

The restitution award is subject to modification in the event the actual costs of remediation end up being higher or lower.
