A POLICE sergeant who raped and sexually assaulted his girlfriend’s daughter has been jailed for just three years.
Vladimir Krull, 39, was facing up to 21 years behind bars after he was found guilty on multiple counts of rape and sexual abuse.
However, at a court hearing on Monday he was given a three-year sentence for each of the three charges he faced – to run concurrently.
The victim told how Krull raped her on two occasions when she was 13, while also forcing her to perform oral sex on him that same year while they sat in a car outside her school.
The brute had just taken the girl to a special breakfast at the school, the court heard.
The victim said Krull began sexually assaulting her in September of 2013 when he kissed her on the mouth just after she turned 13.
Krull then raped her at least twice according to court papers.
The victim, now 16, testified under oath that Krull first forced her into having sex with him in her mother’s apartment and later made her engage in intercourse while they were in his car.
Those two rapes occurred sometime between November of 2013 and February of the following year.
“I used to feel like I had endless options,” the victim said. “Now I feel limited.”
The jury deliberated for five days after sitting through four weeks of arguments and testimony in the case, and after handing down their verdict prosecutors for the Bronx District Attorney’s Office pushed for Krull to receive a 15-year sentence.
In the end however, the former sergeant for the NYPD was given a three-year sentence for each of the three major charges.
Krull, dressed in an orange jumpsuit, kept his eyes mostly on the table in front of him while his ex-girlfriend and her daughter spoke.
When the judge asked if he would like to say anything, he offered two words: “No, sir.”
He will also be able to serve those three sentences concurrently, thus commuting a nine-year sentence to just three.
Krull will also have to register as a sex offender and will be supervised and monitored for a five-year period after his release.
