This bill upgrades the penalties for eluding a law enforcement officer if a stolen motor vehicle is involved. Under current law, a person is guilty of a crime of the third degree if he or she knowingly flees or attempts to elude a law enforcement officer. Third degree crimes are punishable by a term of imprisonment of three to five years, a fine of up to $15,000, or both. If the eluding or attempt to elude creates a risk of death or injury to another person, the person is guilty of a crime of the second degree. Second degree crimes are punishable by a term of imprisonment of five to 10 years, a fine of up to $150,000, or both. This bill would make it a crime of the second degree to flee or attempt to elude a law enforcement officer in a stolen motor vehicle or boat.
