Memo

 BILL NUMBER:  S1899A            REVISED 05/18/09

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.

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.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY : 2002 - A.8625 - referred to codes 2004 - A.2914 - referred to codes 2006 - S.3291 - referred to codes 2008 - S.2278 - referred to codes

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS : None.

EFFECTIVE DATE : This act shall take effect on the 90th day after becoming law.
