Representation Against Any Charges
“Vehicle crimes” is an umbrella term that pertains to a wide variety of charges. For example, a speeding ticket can escalate into reckless driving or street racing charges if you were going too fast, and even become a felony if you injured someone.
California uses a point system to determine the consequences of driving charges. Depending on the severity of your actions, you can receive one or two points on your record, which can result in a license suspension if you accrue:
- Four points within one year
- Six points within two years
- Eight points within three years
You can receive charges for theft of a vehicle if you: took a car someone else owned without permission; the vehicle was with more than $950; you relocated the car; and kept it for a period of time.
