Penalties For Tampering With A Motor Vehicle 1st Degree
Again if you’re found guilty of “tampering with a motor vehicle in the 1st degree” you’ll likely be dealing with a felony conviction on your record. The law in Missouri (Mo. Rev. Stat. § 569.080.) states that if you take a vehicle owned by another party without the consent of the other party, in an effort to deprive the other party of the vehicle, you will be subject to criminal charges. The felony charges can bring a range of penalties from one to seven years in prison, and fines of up to $5000. Therefore, anyone who has been charged with tampering with a motor vehicle in the 1st degree should be looking to hire a reputable St. Louis criminal defense attorney.
