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.

Client Reviews
"Ben Urbelis recently represented me in an OUI case in which I had crashed my car. I honestly did not believe I had any chance of beating it, but fortunately for me Ben was outstanding and all charges were dropped. In my first hearing he was calm, assertive and straight to the point. I was extremely impressed and satisfied. I left my hearing feeling confident that I had made the right choice of hiring him. I am positive I would have lost this case and walked away with an OUI if I hadn't. I am very happy with how he handled my case and how reassured I felt having him as my lawyer." MC
"When I found myself charged with my 3rd DUI I was certain without a doubt that I was facing 6 months to 2 1/2 years in state prison. I can’t believe you were able to guide me calmly through the whole nerve wracking process, never sugar coating anything, staying honest and always keeping me informed the whole time. I still can’t believe that in the end you pulled off a miracle to avoidany jail time. I would recommend you to anyone in the same situation. Thank you so much. You saved me.” JL
