BILL NUMBER:S1042

TITLE OF BILL:

An act
to amend the penal law, in relation to the crime of unauthorized use of
a motor vehicle in the second degree

PURPOSE:

Expands the list of predicate crimes for the charge of unauthorized
use of a motor vehicle in the second degree.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1. Amends Section 165.06 of the Penal Law, to include
unauthorized use of a motor vehicle in the first degree, grand
larceny of a motor vehicle, criminal possession of a motor vehicle,
auto stripping or illegal possession of a vehicle identification
number as predicate convictions for the unauthorized use of a vehicle
in the second degree.

Section 2. Effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

Under current law, a person may be charged with the crime of
unauthorized use of a vehicle in the second degree if he or she has a
prior conviction for unauthorized use within a 10 year period of the
new offense. However, this enhancement does not apply if a
defendant's prior convictions include more serious offenses such as
grand larceny, or other vehicle related crimes. This bill corrects
this shortcoming by including the offenses of unauthorized use of a
vehicle in the first degree, grand larceny, criminal possession, auto
stripping, or illegal possession of a vehicle identification number
among the predicate convictions for charge enhancement.
