Missouri criminal defense: 2 facing charges for stealing car

Two people in Missouri are facing a number of criminal charges after allegedly stealing a car and nearly hitting a police officer with the vehicle. This incident is said to have occurred in the O'Fallon area on Wednesday, March 21. Both of the accused individuals have the right to a criminal defense.

According to reports, police responded to Koch Road after receiving reports of a vehicle theft. Upon their arrival, a car with a man and woman inside drove at an officer and then fled the scene. A chase ensued and ended roughly six miles away without incident. Both of the vehicle's occupants were promptly arrested.

The 35-year-old male who was driving the stolen car has been charged with assault, auto theft and resisting arrest. Bail of $50,000 has been set in his case. The 35-year-old female who was a passenger in the vehicle has been charged with vehicle tampering. Bail was set in her case at $2,500. Court dates regarding this matter have not been published.

The charges in this case for both of the accused individuals can carry some stiff penalties under Missouri laws. Jail/prison time and fines -- among others -- can all take their toll and affect the lives of the accused down the line. Each of these individuals can turn to an experienced criminal defense attorney who will be able to review the details of their cases, question any evidence offered and fight for the best possible outcomes -- whether that be case dismissals, charge reductions or seeking alternative sentencing options.
