Federal Motor Vehicle Theft Law
An individual may be charged with federal motor vehicle theft when that person unlawfully transports a vehicle in interstate or foreign commerce and knew the vehicle was stolen. The person must have taken another’s property rights to that vehicle in a felonious manner to be charged with a federal crime. If the person is under the age of 18, or under 21 with no more than two arrests for vehicle theft, the case cannot be prosecuted in federal court.
Prosecution in Federal Court
Vehicle theft cases are generally tried in state court. When a vehicle theft case involves organized crime, multi-theft operations across state lines, or there are exceptional circumstances, the case may be prosecuted in federal court. While the law does not provide a specific definition, there are situations that are usually considered exceptional circumstances.
Some examples of exceptional circumstances include:
- Stolen vehicles used in the commission of another felony
- Heavily stripped vehicles
- Demolished, sold, or exported stolen vehicles
- Heavy commercial trucks, construction, or farming equipment that was stolen
- More than one vehicle was stolen
If you have been charged with federal vehicle theft, it is important to understand that these cases are aggressively prosecuted. You need skilled, effective, and aggressive legal representation on your side. Contact Jeffrey S. Weiner, P.A. for Miami federal motor vehicle theft attorneys with decades of experience representing clients charged with trafficking in stolen vehicle parts, altering vehicle identification numbers, vehicle theft, and other federal vehicle-related offenses.
