What is the jail time for stealing cars?

My brother just got arrested for stealing a car.

It depends on the state that you live in, your age, how you stole the car, and your prior criminal history. Check your state's legal code online.


Answer by  Olddog (85)

His sentence, if convicted, will be based on many mitigating factors. Your brother's criminal record, the value of the car he stole, the amount of damage done to the vehicle, your brother's age, the prosecutors recommendation all factor into his sentence.

It depends what state the crime is in. The jail time for Grand Theft Auto can be anywhere between 3 and 5 years, for a normal sentence.

If it is his first offense, it will be about six months. Less with good behavior. If he has stolen other cars or committed crimes, he will serve longer.
