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.
