Santa Clarita Criminal Defense Attorney

Grand Theft Auto

Vehicle theft comes under the classification of grand theft auto and may be charged as a misdemeanor or felony. Per Penal Code 487 PC, misdemeanor grand theft auto is punishable by up to one year in jail and if charged as a felony may result in up to three years in prison. The theft of a vehicle or vehicles over certain total values can cause the sentence to be lengthened. Other aggravating factors may also have an effect on sentencing.

If you are facing grand theft auto charges, contacting a Santa Clarita criminal defense lawyer is the first thing you should do. Do not discuss your case with law enforcement officers without an attorney present. Exercising your right to remain silent can save you from inadvertently saying things which may later be used against you, even if you are innocent.

Protecting Your Rights

If you contact Law Offices of David M. Wallin early enough, it is possible we may be able to prevent charges from being filed at all. You may call us at any time as we are available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If charges have been filed, we may be able to have them reduced so that you are not facing felony charges. If you are convicted of a felony, you will lose certain civil rights and can have trouble obtaining employment, loans or housing. Future penalties will also be greatly increased for other felony convictions and certain other legal actions. We will aim for a not guilty verdict and act relentlessly to protect your freedom. Our combined experience of over 40 years, along with our hard work, ensures you receive the service you deserve.

If you have been charged with grand theft auto, contact a Santa Clarita criminal defense attorney right away.
