Larceny of a Motor Vehicle- Massachusetts

Larceny of a Motor Vehicle in Massachusetts is a serious charge, carrying up to 15 years in state prison and a fine up to $15,000.  The elements of this offense include those for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, with the additional element that you stole, received, bought, or concealed a stolen motor vehicle, or that you stole parts or accessories while committing Unauthorized use of a Motor Vehicle.  The prosecution may have weak evidence that you had intent to permanently deprive the vehicle owner of either the vehicle or its parts, in which case I would work to have the charge amended down to the lesser offense of Unauthorized use of a Motor Vehicle.  This can be a very important defense if all of the other elements of unauthorized use are present, because Larceny of a Motor Vehicle not only carries much tougher penalties, but it cannot be Continued Without a Finding as part of a plea bargain, while the charge of Unauthorized use of a Motor Vehicle allows for that possibility.
