Vladimir A. Yulchinchuk, a medical transport driver is accused of picking up a women suffering from â€śmental disorders, including paranoia, mild retardation, an IQ of 80 and a brain injuryâ€? according to a police affidavit used in the article from the Pioneer Press.
The Pioneer Press placed emphasis on the alleged part of the circumstances. It told the story more from the defendantâ€™s point of view although it stayed pretty neutral about the status of Yulchinchukâ€™s guilt. It talked about the judge reducing bail from $100,000 to $50,000 and Yulchinchukâ€™s attorneyâ€™s argument that Yulchinchuk denied the allegations and claimed he did not know the woman.
The article also cited Andrew Dmitruk, the transport companyâ€™s manager who said that Yulchinchuk was a hard-working man who had never posed any problems.
The Star Tribune article was less focused on the defendantâ€™s story and more on the charges and the victimâ€™s side of things. It started out with a strong phrase â€śA man driving a medical transport van in Minneapolis picked up a woman, stripped her and raped her, knowing she was mentally impaired, according to a criminal complaint.â€?
It used equally strong language throughout the article, although still mentioning that it was all according to complaint.
The article then went on to cite the transport companyâ€™s owner Natalie Vmitruk who said Yulchinchuk was fired â€świthin a few minutesâ€? after police informed her of the allegations.
