Carjacking is the criminal offense of stealing another person’s vehicle with a gun, knife, or other type of weapon. Because carjacking involves the use of threats or violence to highjack another person’s car while they’re still in the vehicle, it is considered a violent crime. Like all violent crimes, carjacking is vigorously prosecuted by both law enforcement officials and the district attorney. If you are ultimately convicted of carjacking, you will face a number of serious penalties, such as imprisonment, large fines, restitution to the victim, probation, and a strike on your record.
In addition, because you committed a violent crime with the use of a weapon, you could also lose your right to own or possess a firearm in the future. To ensure you have the aggressive defense you need to effectively fight your charges, it’s best to contact an experienced Tallahassee carjacking defense lawyer at the earliest onset of your case.
