A Moscow court on October 17 convicted Ruslan Shamsuarov, son of a vice president at the private oil company LukOil, and his friend, Viktor Uskov, of insulting police officers but acquitted them of the more serious crime of threatening police with violence.
The court acquitted Abduvakhob Madzhidov, the man driving the vehicle in the early hours of May 22.
The men filmed and broadcast their getaway on the Internet using the Periscope application, taunting and joking crudely about police officers during the chase.
The incident was the latest of numerous high-profile cases that have stoked grassroots outrage over what many Russians see as the impunity with which the rich, powerful, and well-connected brazenly flout the country's road rules.
In early June, the three men were arrested and placed in custody for 15 days for ignoring orders from the police.
State prosecutors had asked that Shamsuarov, Madzhidov, and Uskov be sentenced to more than two years in prison.
Russia's powerful Investigative Committee had earlier sought to charge the men with "hooliganism," which carries a stiffer punishment. But prosecutors instead opted to pursue charges that included insulting and threatening police.
Writing on Twitter, opposition politician and anticorruption campaigner Aleksei Navalny criticized the verdict, drawing attention to what he cast as the unfair application of the law criminalizing "violence" against law enforcement.
He compared the verdict to prison sentences, widely criticized by Western governments and rights activists as politically motivated, handed down to opposition protesters following clashes with police during the May 2012 antigovernment protests on Moscow's Bolotnaya Square.
