"Don’t lock up teens for car theft if it’s unclear they knew the car was stolen"

"Imagine borrowing a car from someone you know, or perhaps getting a ride to work from a friend. The police stop the car. They tell you that, unbeknownst to you, the car had previously been stolen. They cuff you and charge you with a Class 2 felony, regardless of whether you knew about the crime or who happened to be driving.

Sound fair?"
