Penalties for Motor Vehicle Crimes in Boston
The penalties for a motor vehicle crime in Boston will depend on whether you have been charged with a felony or misdemeanor offense. Felony motor vehicle crimes, such as grand theft auto, carjacking, and felony OUI, will result in very serious penalties upon conviction.
Common penalties for a felony conviction include imprisonment, large fines, probation, driver’s license suspension or revocation, community service, and restitution to the victim. Misdemeanor motor vehicle crimes can also lead to these penalties, however the extent of the sentence will not be as severe. Minor traffic offenses, such as speeding or running a red light, are likely to only lead to a driver’s license suspension, traffic school, small fines, and a few points on your driving record.
It should be noted that if a person was seriously injured or killed as a result of your crime, you will undoubtedly face enhanced penalties.
