Robbery is among the most popular crimes in our country. According to current Ukrainian legislation, depriving a person of his legal right to property entails a criminal penalty. However, there are also cases of unjustified accusation of a person in a different scope of committed actions under Article 186 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. Such accusations significantly increase criminal liability under the specified article. Only a professional robbery lawyer can help not only to avoid an unjustified accusation of the accused, but also to significantly reduce the punishment for criminal actions. Lawyers Prykhodko and Partners will be able to protect the interests of the accused under Article 186 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
Important: self-defense when committing socially dangerous acts will only cause time delay. In the future, it will be very difficult for the lawyer to achieve the desired result in the case.
Robbery and theft: what’s the difference?
Very often, people confuse such crimes as robbery and theft. These crimes are indeed combined by such a component as illegal actions against private property. However, there are significant differences. If theft is the secret theft of property, robbery is the open taking of someone else’s property. That is, unlike theft, robbery has an open nature.
According to the Criminal Code, the following types of robbery are defined:
- Robbery with violence.
- Robbery by prior conspiracy of a group of persons.
- Robbery, connected with breaking into the victim’s premises or dwelling.
- Robbery on a particularly large scale.
In the process of qualifying illegal actions, a robbery lawyer must take into account the available methods of committing the crime. It is also important to establish whether the committed act will be related to violence, which is dangerous for human health or life. For example, in some cases, the accused’s actions can be classified as robbery, not robbery.
Liability under Article 186 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine
The Criminal Code of Ukraine, namely Article 186 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, defines the following responsibility:
- Corrective works.
- Public works.
- Confiscation of property.
- Limitation of will.
The degree of responsibility depends on the committed illegal actions.
Assistance of qualified lawyers under Article 186 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine
Criminal proceedings related to robbery cases require special attention from lawyers and advocates. Important: the help of professional lawyers may be needed not only by accused persons and suspects, but also by witnesses and victims.
If, for example, the victim needs help, the lawyer begins his work by studying all the materials on the case. The next stage is an assessment of the total damages caused to the victim. The defender participates in all procedural measures, including inspection of the crime scene and interrogation. If necessary, the lawyer will point out existing inaccuracies or violations of the victim’s legal rights.
