Definition of Carjacking

Under Florida law, carjacking is defined as the criminal act of taking a motor vehicle by means of force, violence, assault, or intimidation. When a person steals a car or motor vehicle without using a weapon, inflicting violence, or threatening the victim, it will be considered grand theft auto, an offense less serious than carjacking. If your carjacking charges should result in a conviction, your sentence could include up to 30 years in prison, up to $10,000 in fines, probation, parole, and/or the loss of the right to own, possess, carry, or purchase a weapon or firearm.
