Vladimir Krull, a former NYPD officer who was convicted of sexually abusing a 13-year-old girl, was sentenced to three years in prison on Monday.
According to The New York Times, Krull was convicted of eight criminal counts that occurred over three different encounters with the girl, who was the daughter of Krull’s girlfriend. The jury found Krull guilty of having sexual relations with the girl twice, and of demanding oral sex from her after a father-daughter breakfast at her school.
Prosecutors had asked the judge to sentence the defendant to 15 years in prison. In total, Krull was sentenced to four three-year sentences and four one-year sentences, but these will be served concurrently. Krull will also be placed on five years of post-release supervision.
The victim, who is now 16, said that the abuse has been “hard” on her relationship with her mother. “I still struggle with the feeling that I betrayed her, and I feel guilty sometimes,” she said.
