Under theft, the criminal law defines such a criminal offense, which is provided for by Article 289 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, namely, illegal seizure of a vehicle, the maximum penalty for which provides for imprisonment for a term of eight to twelve years with confiscation of property.
Illegal seizure means taking possession of a vehicle, deliberately, for any purpose, against the will of the owner or the person in whose use the vehicle is located. The takeover can take place in any way.
Defense by a lawyer for theft of a suspect, accused, defendant
A hijacking lawyer is a lawyer whose statements are included in the Unified Register of Lawyers of Ukraine, the main or one of the main activities of which is the protection of the rights and legitimate interests of the suspect, accused, defendant under Article 289 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
Protection of the interests of a client who in any way became a defendant in a criminal offense under Article 289 of the Criminal Code begins from the moment the theft lawyer enters the case, that is, the conclusion of an agreement on the provision of legal assistance to the suspect, accused, defendant, as well as familiarization with the maximum possible volume of materials of the criminal case.
In the course of acquaintance with the case file by the lawyer for theft, you should find out:
on what basis was the criminal case initiated?
is there actually a criminal offense under Article 289 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine?
on what legal basis was the vehicle at the disposal of the victim?
was the victim personally acquainted with the suspect, the accused, the defendant?
Did the suspect, the accused, the defendant have intent and how is this confirmed?
the presence of witnesses, as well as their testimony?
location of the vehicle?
conducted examinations, their results, as well as much more.
The hijacking lawyer should find out whether the indicated criminal proceedings have been initiated on the basis of an untrue statement by the victim, since it often happens that the owner of the vehicle, after voluntarily transferring the vehicle, declares its theft, having an initial intent to obtain enrichment from the suspect by means of blackmail.
Tasks that are set before the theft lawyer
The main task of a hijacking lawyer is undoubtedly the maximum protection of the interests of the suspect, the accused, the defendant with the aim of full acquittal, if the case is at the stage of trial, or the closure of criminal proceedings at the stage of pre-trial investigation.
If the materials of the criminal case fully confirm the fact of a criminal offense, and the prospects for acquittal are minimal, the task of the theft lawyer is to achieve the minimum punishment for the client.
IMPORTANT! How to understand that a lawyer is an amateur or not a professional in criminal matters?
The lawyer takes a passive position. For example, when a criminal lawyer is just nearby during a search and does nothing (most likely, because he does not understand anything).
The lawyer behaves aggressively towards the investigator or operatives. There are situations when a criminal lawyer constantly gets into conflicts, shouts, and frightens law enforcement officers.
The lawyer is trying to make friends with the investigator. This often happens when a criminal lawyer asks not to seize something during a search and builds friendly relations with the investigator or operatives. High-quality defense in criminal cases is, first of all, the independence and objectivity of a lawyer.
The lawyer claims that you should not do anything, let the investigation look for evidence. This happens in cases of interrogation, when it is recommended to “completely go to Art. 63 of the Constitution of Ukraine ”, instead of fixing the essence of the interrogation and understanding what the person is accused of.
A lawyer uses common phrases without understanding criminal law terminology. You have to understand that criminal cases are not civil. For example, when a lawyer says “some kind of certificate”, “something was taken in court” or confuses the statuses “defendant”, “plaintiff” with criminal “suspect”, “accused.”
A good criminal lawyer cases – this is either a former investigator or a prosecutor who clearly understands how the investigation works or a lawyer with extensive experience in criminal cases, there is no other way! This is especially important if you are looking for a serious crime lawyer!
Basic guidelines by which you can determine that a criminal lawyer is truly professional and will not cheat.
Relationship. A good crime lawyer or law firm always has clients. Relationships should be built like this – you asked for help, it is not a lawyer who runs after you to lure money out. If the opposite happens, be careful!
Office. A lawyer must have an office and not change it for a certain time (at least a year). There are, of course, different cases, but the most important factor in choosing a lawyer is stability. If a criminal lawyer has been working steadily for a long time, then everything is fine with him, and if everything is fine with him, then most likely you will be fine.
Reviews. Before hiring a criminal lawyer, first look at the reviews on Google or social. networks. At the same time, do you treat reviews reasonably? Read them and grasp the essence. It happens that competitors or other unfriendly people write negative reviews. And it happens that reviews are clocked for a couple of hundred hryvnia.
Media. Today, each person will be best told by his social networks. Come and see them. This will help you understand how your future lawyer lives, what cases he does, what achievements he has, by whom and where he is recognized as a specialist.
Experience. An experienced criminal lawyer should not only convince you that he clearly understands what is happening in your specific situation, he should put on the table the same or similar cases in which he took part and where a positive result has been achieved. If there are only words and there is no evidence – do not believe, every lawyer wants to take money from you. It is important that this money is for the cause, not for the words.
Contract. A contract with a lawyer is a very complicated thing. Because he makes them every day, but you do not, and it can be difficult to delve into the whole point. Do not be too lazy to read! Pay special attention to the lines of the contract – how long the lawyer undertakes to provide legal assistance, the amount of work, either in hours, or in specific actions.
Important! A lawyer cannot guarantee a won case – but he can clearly define the scope of work. Pay attention to the general phrases “for providing legal assistance” or “comprehensive support of the case” or “all the services of a criminal lawyer at the stage …”
A situation may arise when you later say “I paid 5 thousand cu, and you are not doing anything. ” And he will say – “I study the materials and prepare one document for the court and I think that this is enough.” And then you will not prove anything and will be forced to look for another lawyer.
Price. What are the prices for criminal defense lawyers in Kiev? What are the prices for criminal lawyers in general in Ukraine? In fact, the prices for criminal defense lawyers are different, from UAH 500 per hour or action to thousands of dollars. Price is a very important criterion especially in criminal matters. A good professional crime lawyer cannot be cheap. But at the same time, the price must be justified. Again, if a criminal lawyer takes $ 1,000 and does 5 specific actions for this, this is normal. And when he takes the tighter $ 1,000 and says “for complex business management” and then does nothing, then this is not normal.
Comparison. Never agree to immediately work with the first lawyer with whom you managed to talk. At least 3 interviews should take place. Then you will be able to understand in comparison who is who. And who is a really criminal lawyer from lawyers, how much does a criminal lawyer cost and who is the best to contact them for help.
What if you are suspected of or charged with a criminal offense?
You need a good criminal lawyer. How do you find such a lawyer? Search on the Internet, select several lawyers specifically in criminal cases. Choose at least three lawyers who specialize in criminal law.
Next, you need advice on a criminal case. High-quality criminal counseling will let you understand whether or not a professional lawyer is what to do next and how much the services of this criminal lawyer cost.
Follow the advice of a lawyer to act with him.
