Vandalism Crime Defense Lawyer

While most people think vandalism only refers to graffiti and is usually a juvenile or gang-related crime, any type of property destruction may fall under the title. If someone keys their ex-lover's car or drunkenly breaks a window, they can be charged with vandalism. If you or your child has been accused of this crime, it is critical you speak with a skilled Sacramento criminal attorney as soon as possible.

Depending on the value of the damaged property, vandalism may be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor. If more than $400 worth of property was damaged, or if the suspect has a prior conviction for this crime, the charge will be a felony. This means you may face a few years in prison, a one-year license suspension, probation, community service and be made to pay up to $5,000 in fines. While vandalism may sound like a minor charge, it is very serious and should only be approached with the help of a top Sacramento criminal lawyer.

Defense Strategies of a Sacramento Criminal Attorney

Depending on your situation, there are a number of defenses available for this crime. Your Sacramento criminal attorney may be able to negotiate the charges down to a misdemeanor if the damages was anywhere near $400. If evidence against you was circumstantial or was obtained illegally, we may be able to have the case dropped if there is a lack of compelling legal evidence. Lastly, we may be able to get the property owner to drop charges in exchange for your willingness to make amends by fixing the damaged property.

If you or your child has been accused of vandalism, you have a number of options when it comes to a defense. Please call The Law Offices of Roland X Tiemann and schedule a consultation with a Sacramento criminal attorney from our firm.
