This article studies the ratio of such legal facts, as the continuing and ongoing offenses, the identification of which is the purpose of the author’s research. The relevance of this subject is due to the synonymity of such participles as “continuing” and “ongoing”, which is one of the causes why the law enforcement officials have difficulties when qualifying offenses as such. Besides, until recently, these phenomena have been sufficiently studied only in the framework of such branch legal sciences as penal and administrative law.
However, at the law theory level, the continuing and ongoing delicts became the subject of the research for the first time, which indicates the scientific novelty of the current work.
In this article, relying on the signs of the lasting and continued offenses created primarily in the penal law, the author formulates general legal criteria of differentiation of these phenomena. They include the following: 1) a mediation of the delict continuing offenses through the objective side of the delict, and ongoing — through the subjective side; 2) the continuing offenses are characterized by a continuous illegal state while the ongoing delicts include several identical acts united by a single criminal purpose.
Based on the conducted research with the purpose of increasing the effectiveness of law enforcement and respect for the principles of legality, justice, and inadmissibility of double punishment for one act, the author proposes introducing amendments to the current legislation. He offers to supplement the article 12.19 of the RF Administrative Offences Code with the qualified structure containing the aggravating factor — the violation of the rules of the parking of vehicles lasting more than 8 hours.
