Disgraced Pavel Dmitrichenko faces a lengthy jail sentence after being found guilty today in an acid attack that nearly blinded the artistic director of the Bolshoi Ballet last January.
Following a month-long trial, Judge Yelena Maximova said the 29-year-old and two co-defendants had intentionally caused grievous bodily harm to the victim, Sergei Filin.
State prosecutors have asked for a nine-year prison sentence for Dmitrichenko.
Sentencing is expected later today
