Dariusz was charged with desecrating graves and stealing the human remains from them in 2016 and 2017.
He could have faced eight years behind bars but prosecutors decided not to pursue a jail sentence as he was found to be insane.
‘The experts stated that Dariusz R was insane, that is, he had an abolished ability to recognise his deeds,’ Grazyna Wawryniuk from the District Prosecutor’s Office said.
‘Thus, according to the law, he did not commit any crimes.’

Dariusz would remain in detention until the end of October when authorities would decide what to do with him.
