Question:

What are the penalties for automobile theft in Connecticut?

Answer:

Automobile TheftAutomobile theft in Connecticut is a felony— even if you just took the car for a joy ride and brought it back to its rightful owner the following day. A common thing that car thieves in Connecticut do is wait at a gas station for somebody to pull up and leave their car running, then take that person’s car. That, too, is a felony under Connecticut law, even if that person gets their car back ten minutes later intact.

If you had no authorization to drive somebody’s car and you drove it, you could be looking at a felony charge. You will need to get a lawyer to help defend you against that felony charge, specifically a lawyer with experience in cases like this.
