Stages of executing a crime

Consummated felonies as well as those which are frustrated and attempted, are punishable. (Article 6, Ibid.)

a. Consummated

A felony is consummated when all the elements necessary for its execution and accomplishment are present. (Paragraph 2, Article 6, Ibid.)

b. Frustrated

A felony is frustrated when the offender performs all the acts of execution which would produce the felony as a consequence but which, nevertheless, do not produce it by reason of causes independent of the will of the perpetrator. (Paragraph 2, Article 6, Ibid.)

c. Attempted

There is an attempt when the offender commences the commission of a felony directly or over acts, and does not perform all the acts of execution which should produce the felony by reason of some cause or accident other than this own spontaneous desistance. (Paragraph 3, Article 6, Ibid.)
