Santa Clarita Grand Theft Auto Attorney

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.
