What are the consequences of a vehicle code violation 10851(a)?

If you are convicted of a 10851(a) then you may receive 16 months, two years or up to three years in jail, depending on the nature of the offense and your criminal history. In addition, if you have prior vehicle thefts then your sentencing could be enhanced for a longer period of custody time. Vehicle Code violation 10851(a) is also a "wobbler" meaning that the charge could be reduced to a misdemeanor therefore reducing your potential custody time to only one year.

How do they prove that I committed a V.C. 10851(a)?

In order to find a person guilty of grand theft auto (GTA) the district attorney must prove:

1. Defendant took or drove a vehicle belonging to another person;

2. The other person had not consented to the taking or driving of his or her vehicle;

3. When defendant took or drove the vehicle, he or she had the specific intent to deprive the owner either permanently or temporarily of his or her title to or possession of the vehicle.
