DuPage County Auto Theft Lawyers

Auto Theft Penalties Depend On Several Factors

Cars are often stolen for use in committing other crimes. Sometimes, vehicles are stolen for their valuable engine parts or wheels. Depending on the value of the car and who the registered owner is, penalties can include staggering fines and imprisonment.

In most cases, auto theft is charged as a Class 2 felony in Illinois. These charges may apply in any situation where a person is accused of receiving, concealing, selling, transferring, or possessing a vehicle or essential vehicle parts when they know that these items have been stolen. A person may also face felony auto theft charges if they are accused of removing or altering a vehicle's identification number or the serial numbers of essential auto parts.
