“With regard to the provisions of the Criminal Procedure Code, it is not possible to initiate criminal proceedings, as the case involved a person who is not criminally liable for lack of age,” Aleš Cimbala, a spokesman for the Prague City Public Prosecutor’s Office, told the iDNES.cz portal.
Children under the age of 15 are not criminally liable and cannot go to prison. Therefore, during the investigation, the police assessed whether to initiate the so-called proceedings in the case of children under the age of 15. As they decided, but have not yet communicated. The iDNES.cz portal is looking for a statement from the police.
Should the police initiate proceedings against children under the age of 15, they would decide on a sentence for a boy of a special juvenile court, which could impose educational measures on the offender’s prosecutor’s office, such as probation officer supervision, protective treatment, enrollment in a therapeutic or psychological program, or education.
However, the Public Prosecutor’s Office did not state whether the case would be dealt with by a juvenile court, nor did it state whether it proposed any of these measures, as spokesman Aleš Cimbala did not provide more information due to the age of the suspected boy.
An adult offender was facing 15 to 20 years in prison or even an exceptional sentence for attempted murder
Police officers were called to Ploskovická Street in Dolní Chabry in May this year to attack with a knife. Rescuers treated two people on the spot. As it turned out, the mother and son were injured.
According to unconfirmed information, they were attacked at night by a friend of a stabbed boy, fourteen-year-old Adam B., who slept here.
According to server information NEWS CNN Prima the fourteen-year-old boy first stabbed his friend and then wanted to attack his sister as well. She was rescued from the attacker by her mother, who had not stood up before. She then ran away into the car with the two injured children, where she locked herself and called the police.
The next morning, while searching for the perpetrator, police found a barefoot boy with a knife in a wooden shed in a garden near the crime scene. According to the information, he was also cut from the place. However, the connection between this boy and the attack in the family house has not yet been officially confirmed by the police.
