Public Hearing on Car Thefts

Posted on March 30, 2021


There’s a Judiciary Committee public hearing Wednesday [Details below] where you can share your thoughts about the motor vehicle theft crisis.

Early this session, House Republicans submitted legislation to impose serious legal consequences for teenagers (15-18) who are repeatedly charged with stealing or attempting to steal a vehicle. Our proposal includes:

  • Facing charges on the regular criminal docket;
  • Expanded ability for judges to order detainment or GPS monitoring;
  • Categorize as “serious juvenile repeat offender” upon second theft conviction;
  • Require DCF intervention to provide services to offender;
  • Modify state pursuit policy, allow police to intercept thieves as the crime occurs
