As the title suggests, “Grand theft auto” is not just a video game. Rather, it is a type of vehicle theft, known as vehicle theft and/or vehicle theft. It is defined as the unauthorized theft of another’s car to permanently remove the gta owner from the car. Sometimes, the suspect disassembles the car for money at a “chop shop” or intentionally fails to return a rental car.
The suspect may rob the car by force, trick, or pretenses.A charge of grand theft auto is described as a “wobbler.” This means that, depending on the circumstances, the value of the gta car, and the defendant’s previous criminal record, it may be filed as either a misdemeanor or a felony.If a car is stolen, it will always be charged as grand theft auto, regardless of whether the car is valued at $500 or $50,000.
So the statutory limit between grand theft and petty theft for most other items is $950 for cars, so there is no such thing as “petty theft auto.”When these sentencing enhancements are not granted, one convicted of misdemeanor auto theft faces up to one year in county jail, plus restitution to the victim for the car’s value, as well as paying law enforcement’s costs to locate and retrieve the vehicle.
When a client is charged with felony grand theft auto, she or he faces a minimum of sixteen months in state prison and a maximum of three years in prison, plus restitution similar to that which would apply to a misdemeanor grand theft conviction.Depending on the client’s criminal history, the facts of the case and the victim’s view of the taking, formal probation is possible for a felony conviction of GTA, and informal probation is possible for a misdemeanor conviction.
