Carjacking Your Future is Too Important to Risk

Tampa Carjacking Attorney

Motor Vehicle Theft by Force or Threatening in FL

According to Fla. Stat. § 812.133, carjacking is a theft crime that involves taking another person's vehicle with the intention of keeping it permanently or temporarily. Carjacking is a form of larceny that involves intimidating a motorist into forfeiting his/her car. It may also involve the use of force, violence or assault to take the vehicle. If a firearm or other weapon is used during the crime, the offense may be charged as a felony.

While by no means isolated to Florida, the crime of carjacking is prosecuted with a particular degree of severity in this state due to our prominence as a tourist destination. In the past couple decades our state has seen a large increase in carjacking incidents with tourists being a major target. As a result state lawmakers have ensured that those who commit this crime are faced with very serious consequences.

Because this crime also involves the use of threats, force and possibly weapons it is carries harsher penalties than a grand theft auto charge.
