Massachusetts Motor Vehicle Theft Laws
Motor vehicle theft is very common in Massachusetts and the penalties are very serious. The state can prove motor vehicle theft in two ways. One way is for the state to prove that the defendant steals a motor vehicle or obtain control of the motor vehicle with reason to know that it was stolen.
The second way to prove a person guilty of motor vehicle theft is if the prosecution proves that the defendant took the motor vehicle without the authority of its owner and steals from it any of its parts or accessories. This would be more in line of a person stealing the tires of a car and putting the car on cinderblocks.
Massachusetts Motor Vehicle Theft Penalties
If convicted of theft of a motor vehicle, the defendant can face up to 15 years in state prison, or not more than 2 ½ years in jail. Aside from the potential jail and prison penalties, a defendant can face a fine of not more than $15,000.
