Grand Theft Auto Charges in Ann Arbor – Washtenaw County Criminal Defense Lawyer

Oftentimes, vehicle theft charges are referred to as “Grand Theft Auto” which commonly refers to theft of a vehicle in excess of a certain amount, which leads to a felony conviction. While there is no specific grand theft charge relating to vehicles, felony theft laws could relate to vehicle cases. If property valued at more than $1,000 but less than $20,000 is stolen, imprisonment for up to 5 years and a $10,000 fine, or a fine of three times the value of the stolen property, whichever is greater. Theft of property valued at over $20,000 can lead to 10 years behind bars and a fine of $15,000 or up to three times the value of the stolen property.
