    printer friendly version

    Question: My friend and I borrowed our parents car and we were caught in another state. What could happen? I have no license or insurance.

    Answer: In Arizona, this may have been charged as either a 'Theft of Means of Transportation' (a class 3 felony) or as 'Unlawful Use of Means of Transportation' (a class 5 or 6 felony). The difference is your intent of taking the car.

    To prove theft, the state must show beyond a reasonable doubt that you controlled the car with the intent to permanantly keep the vehicle from the owner. See A.R.S. 13-1814 (a).

    To prove unlawful use, the state must show that you controlled the car without the intent to keep it or that you were a passenger and unaware that the car was stolen. See A.R.S. 13-1803 (a).
