English term or phrase: Criminal instrument
Hello everyone, I can't find a correct translation for this term. Here is the complete sentence:
"The possession of a criminal instrument is an inchoate offense. This category of offense applies to conduct that the government considers criminal even though the person being charged may not have harmed anyone. What makes the conduct criminal is the fact that harm would have or could have occurred had the law not prevented it."
