Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill creates the crime of intentionally taking by the use of force, or by the
threat of the use of force, a vehicle without the consent of the owner. The penalty
classification for this crime is a Class E felony.
This bill also increases to a Class F felony the penalty classification for a repeat
offense of taking and driving a vehicle without the consent of the owner. Under
current law, a repeat offense has the same penalty classification as the first offense,
a Class H felony. The bill also increases to a Class G felony the penalty classification
for a repeat offense of driving or operating a vehicle without the consent of the owner.
Under current law a repeat offense has the same penalty classification as a first
