NY Wants to Crack Down on Carjacking Penalties
By Joe Gullo
ALBANY, N.Y. - New York legislators want to crack down on carjacking penalties.
The senate passed a bill that would make it a felony to carjack a vehicle with a child under 16 inside. Those convicted would face up to 25 years in prison.
Earlier this year, an Onondaga county woman was killed and her young daughter sexually assaulted during a carjacking.
The bill is now in the New York Assembly.
