Dallas Carjacking Defense LawyerAggressive Criminal Defense for Carjacking Offenses
Carjacking is similar to grand theft auto in that it involves stealing a car, but it is different in that, unlike grand theft auto, carjacking requires taking the car while the vehicle is occupied. There is usually an element of violence to carjacking, whether it is actual physical violence, showing a weapon to the vehicle owner or occupant, or threatening bodily harm or death. Carjacking is one of the most serious types of theft crimes in the United States. It is a federal first degree felony, which means that if you are charged with carjacking, you may have to go to trial in both state and federal court.
- Carjacking without a weapon: Up to 30 years in prison and/or up to $10,000 in fines
