Utilize Our Seasoned Trial & Negotiating Skills

Like many other states, Tennessee classifies and punishes theft crimes based on the value of the property that was stolen. Individuals who steal more valuable property will be punished more severely. Just as there are a number of theft crimes, there are different types of auto theft crimes that can be committed.

An individual may be found guilty of committing the following types of auto theft:

  1. Carjacking is defined as taking someone else's vehicle away from them through the use of force, intimidation, or with a deadly weapon.
  2. Failing to return a rental car occurs when an individual does not return the rental car at the end of their rental agreement period.
  3. Joyriding is committed when an individual takes another person's car without their permission. Joyriding is different than a typical theft crime, because the person who takes the vehicle intends to return it.

Because the punishment for an auto conviction is a reflection of the severity of the crime committed, it can be highly beneficial to have a team by your side that has extensive knowledge in auto theft defense.
