Lawyer under Article 185 of the Criminal Code — Theft

At least once in life, everyone has faced the problem of theft of property. According to current legislation, theft is the secret theft of another person’s property. It can be combined with the penetration of territories that are under protection. Quite often, the term “theft” is replaced by the term “theft”.

If you are charged under Article 185 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, the first thing to do is to enlist the support of professional lawyers. Specialists of our legal office Prykhodko and Partners provide their clients with highly qualified professional assistance.

Administrative and criminal liability for theft

If we are talking about petty theft, administrative responsibility may be imposed for such actions (Article 51 of the Code of Criminal Procedure). The key feature that determines the type of liability is the amount of damage that was caused. To qualify theft as an administrative crime, the total amount must not exceed 0.2 NMDH. If we are talking about petty theft, the culprit faces one of the following punishments:

  1. Corrective works.
  2. Fine.
  3. Administrative arrest (up to 15 days).

Now we will consider in more detail the issue of criminal liability under Article 185 of the Criminal Code. In the process of qualifying a criminal offense, the following characteristics are taken into account: a group of persons; repetition; prior conspiracy; the amount of material damage that was caused; breaking into a home.

  2. Confiscation of property.
  3. Arrest.
  4. Restriction of liberty (an alternative option is deprivation of liberty).
  5. Implementation of public or corrective works.

On what grounds can a person be released from criminal liability under Article 185 of the Criminal Code?

At the stage of conducting the investigation, which precedes the transfer of the case to the court and in the process of consideration of the case in court, the circumstances of the release of a person from criminal liability under Article 185 of the Criminal Code may be established.

The most common among such grounds are:

  • Reconciliation of the parties (victim and suspect).
  • Contrition.
  • Expiration of the statute of limitations.
  • Pardon/amnesty.
  • Transfer of the identity of the suspect to bail (in most cases, we are talking about minors).
