Carjacking is a branch of robbery that involves stealing a vehicle from another individual using force or threat. Prior to the 1990’s cars were typically only stolen when the driver of the vehicle was not present. But as carjacking became more and more popular, the government was forced to develop a law particular to robbing a vehicle with the owner present.
The charge is often tried at both a state and federal level. And because of this a strong, reliable defense must be developed to stand trial in both courts of law. Thus, an experienced, dependable criminal defense lawyer is very necessary when it comes to this type of crime.
