Motor Vehicle Theft
Stealing a car is a serious crime and if you are caught you could be convicted and sent to prison.
This is the kind of crime that can send you spiraling downward. If you have been arrested on a vehicle theft charge, you should immediately call criminal defense attorney Michael Anzalone to represent you.
Car theft is a crime that is not looked on favorably by prosecutors or law enforcement. If you are caught, they will want to throw the book at you.What is Vehicle Theft?
Vehicle theft is the taking of someone’s car without their permission to deprive the owner of it’s use.
In New Hampshire the crime can be broken down into either a Class A or Class B felony.
A car theft would probably be considered a Class A felony because the value of a vehicle is often greater than $1,500. Also, if a gun was used in the commission of this crime, then it elevates any charges.
Under the state’s statues, as pointed out in RSA 637:1, a Class A felony is punishable by up to 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $4,000.
If you are charged as a Class B felony, you could face up to 7 years in prison and can be fined up to $4,000.
So this is a very serious charge and you will need to have a lawyer representing you who can fight for your rights.
Michael Anzalone is well-versed in the state’s laws and the judicial system in general. He has years of experience in defending people who steal vehicles.
He will tell you that you should NEVER speak with police officers or investigators before you speak with your legal team. This is because they will take anything you tell them and turn around and use in against you in court. Your lawyer will help you determine what you should say and what you shouldn’t say so you don’t harm your case before it goes before a judge.
At The Anazalone Law Firm, your best interests will always be a top priority.
After consulting with you about your case, Michael Anzalone will recommend whether he thinks your case is strong enough to move through the judicial system. Perhaps he will recommend that you plead guilty to either vehicle theft or a lesser offense for a lighter sentence.
Your attorney will also tell you that you should stay away from a life of crime. That’s the best way to avoid a situation that can destroy your life. With a vehicle theft charge, you could be facing some serious prison time.
This can ruin your life. For example, your reputation _ or what is left of it _ can be further diminished with an arrest on felony charges. Think too about what this can mean for your family and your future employment opportunities.
