Florida Laws about Theft Crimes

While regular theft crimes such as shoplifting are often charged as misdemeanors, carjacking and burglary usually involve the threat of violence, making them much more serious crimes. Carjacking occurs when a person intentionally and unlawfully takes another person’s motor vehicle through the use of force, violence, or threat.

As a first-degree felony, this crime carries a possible sentence of up to 30 years in prison, 30 years of probation, and up to $10,000 in fines. It also carries a minimum mandatory 21 months of prison time. If a weapon or firearm was used during the carjacking, the penalties increase to a minimum of 48 months in prison.

Under Florida law, a person who is convicted of actually possessing a firearm during a carjacking is subject to being sentenced under the 10/20/Life statute.

This could result in minimum prison terms of:

  • 10 years if in possession of a firearm
  • 20 years if the firearm was discharged
  • 25 years if someone is injured or killed by the firearm

You will also have a criminal record following you around for the rest of your life, making it more difficult to find work, housing, and financial opportunities. Make sure you have a strong criminal defense lawyer helping you tell your side of the story.
