Reading time: 4 min.

Back in the middle of the last century, the Convention was adopted, which provides for the fight against human trafficking and prostitution. Until the moment when corrections were made to Article 303 of the Criminal Code, liability was provided only for engaging in prostitution. According to the current Criminal Code, pimping, that is, forcing another person into prostitution or involving another person in this type of activity, is punishable as a crime. In this article, our lawyers, specialists of the law office Prykhodko and Partners will tell about the punishment for pimping.

Components of the crime under Article 303 of the Criminal Code

The main thing that is worth noting is that criminal actions under Article 303 of the Criminal Code, as well as other illegal actions against the foundations of morality and public peace, are carried out exclusively for selfish motives.

The subject of this article is a pimp. Who is it about? This is a person who is the main organizer of the provision of sexual services by other persons for receiving a certain monetary reward. Among the main methods of influence on the provision of services in the field of the sex industry: deception, blackmail, the danger of using violence or violence. What does the Criminal Code say about prostitution? Prostitution is characterized as the provision of sexual services to those persons who seek to receive them for a specified fee.

Liability under Article 303 of the Criminal Code

The choice of one or another type of punishment depends on the severity of the committed illegal actions. For example, if the suspect engages another person in prostitution by using violent actions or using her vulnerability, the maximum punishment that the person faces is imprisonment for a term of up to 5 years.

The following characteristics also affect the degree of punishment:

  1. Number of people.
  2. Repetition of the offense.
  3. Committing illegal actions by a group of persons.
  4. Use of official position.
  5. Exercising financial pressure on another person.

In the presence of the above-mentioned aggravating factors, the punishment under Article 303 of the Criminal Code can be increased to imprisonment for a term of up to 7 years. If a minor was involved in prostitution, the term of imprisonment will be up to 15 years. In addition, confiscation of property is applied.

Quite often, criminal proceedings under Article 303 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine are falsified. That is why quality legal assistance cannot be dispensed with. We will talk about quality legal assistance later.
