In order to prove charges of tampering in the first degree, the prosecution must be able to show that you were operating a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent. The prosecutor does not have to prove that the car was stolen or that you stole the car. They only have to show that you did not have the owner’s permission to be driving the vehicle at the time of the incident. This is a Class C felony and can carry up to seven years in prison. The defense for tampering in the first degree requires an experienced criminal attorney to minimize your exposure or outright win the case.
