CT Gen Stat § 53a-212 (2013) What's This?

(a) A person is guilty of stealing a firearm when, with intent to deprive another person of such other person’s firearm or to appropriate the firearm to such person or a third party, such person wrongfully takes, obtains or withholds a firearm, as defined in subdivision (19) of section 53a-3.

(b) Stealing a firearm is a class C felony for which two years of the sentence imposed may not be suspended or reduced by the court, and five thousand dollars of the fine imposed may not be remitted or reduced by the court unless the court states on the record its reasons for remitting or reducing such fine.

(P.A. 77-217; P.A. 13-3, S. 43.)

History: P.A. 13-3 made technical changes in Subsec. (a) and amended Subsec. (b) to change penalty from a class D felony to a class C felony and provide that 2 years of the sentence imposed may not be suspended or reduced by the court and $5,000 of the fine imposed may not be remitted or reduced unless the court states its reasons for remitting or reducing the fine.
