Los Angeles Carjacking Attorney

Criminal Lawyer for Any Type of Violent Crime Arrest

A carjacking (California Penal Code 215) is the taking of a vehicle from an individual while in the immediate presence of someone who possessed the automobile or from the passenger without his or her consent. This is accomplished via force or threat with the intention of depriving the other person of the vehicle permanently or temporarily. California has one of the strictest penal codes on carjacking in the nation and it is considered a serious theft crime offense. If convicted of this crime you can receive up to nine years in jail. The penalty can be increased if a weapon was involved in the carjacking. Due to a carjacking being a "serious felony" in California it will accompany a "strike" under the California Three Strikes law if you are convicted.

If you are being charged with carjacking in Los Angeles you should contact our criminal defense lawyers at Cron, Israel and Stark as soon as you can.
