While the crimes of grand theft auto and joyriding may seem like the same thing, there is an important distinction between the two. The amount of time that the thief intends to dispossess the owner of their vehicle makes all the difference.

Simply put: joyriding is when a person takes a car without the intent to permanently deprive the owner of the vehicle. Grand theft auto (GTA) requires the intent to permanently deprive the owner of their vehicle.

Whether a GTA or joyriding indictment is charged as a felony or misdemeanor can vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Generally, grand theft auto is considered a felony, and joyriding can go either way. Most, if not all, states can charge either crime as a felony. However, certain states, such as California, allow prosecutors the discretion to charge joyriding or GTA, if there is no, or little, damage to the vehicle and the value of the vehicle is very low, as a misdemeanor.

Prior to this incident, Morgan Markward was facing felony violation of probation out of Okaloosa County for obstruction of justice and possession of methamphetamine. Now, she and Justice Kelley are both wanted for fleeing and eluding and grand theft auto.
