In one of the courtyards of Barnaul on February 9, a seven-year-old boy stole a car parked at the entrance with the engine running. Wanting to go for a ride, he accidentally caused an accident in which a person was injured. The thief ran away from the scene of the accident, and only recently was he found. This was reported by the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Altai Territory.
About what punishment such a young criminal may face, in an interview Public News Service told Honored Lawyer of Russia Ivan Solovyov. He noted that for most crimes in the Russian Federation, responsibility begins at the age of 16, and for certain types of grave and especially grave crimes – at the age of 14.
“But usually such draconian measures are not taken right away – usually a preventive conversation is held with the minor offender, as well as with his parents.”blockquote
“Younger violators of the law are not subject to criminal liability,” the expert said. – If a minor has committed an unlawful act and caused damage – in this case, to the property of other people – then repayment falls on the shoulders of his parents. I think this boy will now be put on preventive registration due to the gravity of his act. But usually such draconian measures are not taken immediately – usually a preventive conversation is held with the minor offender, as well as with his parents.”
In special cases, the publication’s interlocutor continued, a minor may be transferred to a specialized educational institution.
“Of course, this is not a colony or even a colony-settlement, but, nevertheless, the conditions there are different from those in a regular school.”blockquote
“Of course, this is not a colony or even a colony-settlement, but, nevertheless, the conditions there differ from those in a regular school,” Solovyov emphasizes. — In general, I want to note that our law is quite humane in relation to minors. After all, if we take the United States, then imprisonment for children under 14 years of age is quite acceptable there. And this is not some kind of “sleeping” practice – there are actually several thousand of these “criminals” in prison!”
