Carjacking is stealing an occupied motor vehicle by force, usually by an armed person. Occupants of the car are typically forced to exit the car under threat of bodily injury or are sometimes kept in the car and held as hostages.

Since weapons are often present during a carjacking, the crime is usually considered a felony offense. Like grand theft auto, it involves stealing a car, but unlike grand theft auto, carjacking requires taking the vehicle while it is occupied. Carjacking is actually a federal crime since homicides so often happen during the crime.
A conviction would mean you may have to face trial in state and federal court. Penalties for carjacking include up to 30 years of prison time and up to a $10,000 fine if the crime was committed without a weapon. If a weapon used, the culprit could receive a life sentence.
