Rezolut partner lawyer Andrey Bochkarev achieved the termination of the criminal case in Revda
At the beginning of this year, the client’s relatives contacted the Rezolut law firm with a request to provide him with qualified legal assistance in a criminal case. At the time of contacting the company, the Principal was in custody on suspicion of committing a crime under Part 1 of Art. 161 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (robbery). The situation was complicated by the fact that he did not have a permanent place of residence on the territory of the Sverdlovsk region, did not have a permanent job, in connection with which the investigating authorities had sufficient fears that the suspect might hide from law enforcement agencies.
Rezolut partner lawyer Andrey Bochkarev entered the criminal case as a defender. Correctly chosen and coordinated with the client’s tactics in the criminal case, aimed at reconciliation with the victim, made it possible, already 3 days after the lawyer entered the case, to convince the police and prosecutor’s office that the client does not pose a social danger and the measure of restraint for him can be changed. Thanks to the active and verified actions of the lawyer, 4 days after the client was detained, the measure of restraint chosen by him in the form of detention was changed by the investigator to a written undertaking not to leave the place and proper behavior.
The established law enforcement practice of investigating criminal cases, unfortunately, did not allow at the stage of preliminary investigation to resolve the issue of terminating the criminal case.
Meanwhile, at the very first court session in the criminal case, the Revdinsky City Court of the Sverdlovsk Region made a decision to terminate it due to the reconciliation of the parties.
Thus, the actions of the lawyer Andrey Bochkarev in the criminal case, in which the principal had every chance of receiving a conviction and punishment in the form of a real decision of freedom, allowed in the end to achieve a successful result, namely, the termination of the criminal case and the release of the principal from punishment.
