Carjacking in California
Contact Our Modest Criminal Defense Lawyer Today
Carjacking is considered a serious offense in California and can result
in spending several years in prison and paying thousands of dollars in
fines. Taking another person’s car by means of force of fear –
regardless if he or she is the driver or the passenger – is considered
carjacking, and it is a felony under state law.

Penalties For Carjacking
Carjacking is considered a more serious offense than grand theft auto and
unlawful taking of a vehicle. Because force and fear is used to take the
vehicle in the owner’s immediate presence, the penalties for carjacking
are severe – and can increase if you used a gun, injured the victim
or kidnap the individual during the carjacking.
Penalties for carjacking can include:
- Probation and up to one year in county jail
- 3 to 9 years in a California state prison
- Fines up to $10,000
