Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello! I will be reviewing your question and posting a response momentarily; if you have any follow up questions please respond here. Thanks!
FL does not have an auto grand theft statute, so the general theft statute applies and that is here:
There is no requirement that the car be missing for 10 days; rather once the owner no longer authorizes the use of the auto, it converts to theft
One can file a police report, or can actually sue the individual in court for the value of the car.
Civil court is proper if the claim is less than $5,000:
But if you review the above statute you will see there is no 10 day requirement.
Post here please
