Florida Carjacking Laws & Penalties
Under Florida code 812.133, carjacking is defined as “[…] the taking of a motor vehicle which may be the subject of larceny from the person or custody of another, with intent to either permanently or temporarily deprive the person or the owner of the motor vehicle, when in the course of the taking there is the use of force, violence, assault, or putting in fear.”
Carjacking is prosecuted as a first-degree felony and is assigned a Level 7 offense severity ranking under Florida’s Criminal Punishment Code. If convicted of carjacking, you could be sentenced to a maximum 30-year prison term and fines of up to $10,000.
If a weapon is used in the commission of the violent crime, carjacking becomes punishable by up to life in prison and will be classified as a Level 9 offense under Florida’s sentencing guidelines. If a firearm was used in the commission of a carjacking, a person can also be sentenced under Florida’s 10-20-Life statute. This means Under a conviction can result in a minimum 10-year prison sentence if you were in possession of a firearm, a minimum 20-year prison term if the firearm was discharged, and a minimum 25-year prison sentence if someone suffered an injury or was killed by the firearm.
