Unlawfully Driving Away a Motor Vehicle (UDAA)
Many auto theft cases involve the charge of UDAA, which doesn’t actually require the prosecution to prove that the defendant had any intent to steal. UDAA can be the only charge a person faces, included with other charges as part of an auto theft case, but should always be taken very seriously no matter what the specifics of the case may be. UDAA can be easier for the prosecution to prove, and as such you need to ensure your lawyer starts fighting for you right away. Grabel & Associates is available now to begin guiding you through what you need to do in order to fight back against police and prosecutors who are pushing to land you behind bars. UDAA can lead to up to 93 days behind bars and a $500 fine. Fight back against these penalties with our talented attorneys by your side.
