He then slashed her neck and told her that “it will take two days before she bleeds out, so she has a choice between a quick and painless death or a long and painful one”, and as she made it clear she wanted neither option, he stabbed her a knife to the neck. The girl then fell to the ground and pretended to be dead. According to the indictment, the Ukrainian then, in an attempt to prevent his discovery, stripped the girl, wrapped her in a bag, poured natural SAVO on her chest and threw her off the cliff into the forest, where he covered her with branches.

Veselovskyy only confessed to sexual abuse and to the fact that he injured the Pilsen woman with a knife. Then, he said, in a panic he tried to dispose of the body. He said he was sorry for what he had done and was lucky the schoolgirl survived. “I want to apologize to her. I hope she has a beautiful life and forgets about me soon. I also want to apologize to my family and my girlfriend. I want to serve my sentence and be a better person,” said the young Ukrainian in his closing speech. His defense attorney Petr Brožovský said that there is not a single direct evidence in the file that his client committed everything stated in the indictment. For adequate punishment would consider 11 years in a maximum security prison. According to him, his client is essentially a child who is just playing tough with a knife.

On the contrary, the injured party’s representative, Tereza Rogová, stated that the defendant behaved extremely amorally, and recalled that, according to experts, the young man is dangerous for society, is fascinated by violence and has tendencies towards sadism. She further stated that the victim suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder due to the rape, knife attack and subsequent actions of the defendant. Prosecutor Jiří Richtr proposed 18 years in prison for the defendant. He recalled that the young man planned the murder and was equipped for it.

However, the Senate headed by Judge Helena Przybylova sent Veselovský to a maximum security prison for 19 years and must also pay the victims 135,000 crowns as compensation for non-pecuniary damage and another 350,000 crowns for mental suffering.

In her reasoning, Judge Przybylová stated that, given the experts’ conclusions that the accused is an aethic – a psychopathic personality without the possibility of treatment, the amount of the punishment is completely appropriate. “The court is of the opinion that he did not commit his act out of insanity, as the defense claimed, but with deliberation. In addition, the victim will bear the consequences for her health in the long term, if not her whole life. The defendant did not even show any sincere remorse during the whole time. The only mitigating circumstance is his age just above the age limit,” said Przybylová.

Veselovskyy appealed against the verdict through his lawyer on the spot, the public prosecutor kept the deadline for the appeal.
