We Take Your Vandalism Charges Seriously

Someone commits vandalism when they deface, destroy or otherwise damage public property or private property belonging to someone else. Examples include:

  • Keying a car or slashing tires
  • Leaving graffiti on walls, signs, etc.
  • Smashing the mailboxes in a neighborhood
  • Destroying or damaging someone else’s personal property during an argument or as an act of revenge

Although vandalism is often considered a “petty” crime, the penalties for a conviction can be serious. They might include thousands of dollars in fines and restitution, probation or jail time and the mandatory restoration or cleanup of the property (if possible).

Securing a conviction requires prosecutors to prove that you purposely caused damage to the property and that you acted with malicious intent. Depending on the details of the case, we may be able to argue that someone else defaced the property, you destroyed it accidentally, you had permission from the property owner or you actually were the owner of the property.

Defense Against A Wide Array Of Theft Charges

Theft is a categorial term that applies to a range of offenses. A partial list includes:

  • Shoplifting and other types of petty theft
  • Grand theft (including stealing automobiles, firearms, etc.)
  • Burglary
  • Receiving stolen property
  • Theft of U.S. mail (typically a federal crime)
  • Embezzlement
  • Extortion

The range of penalties for a theft conviction is as varied as the category itself. Penalties will depend on a number of factors, including the value of the property stolen, your previous criminal history and more. Depending on the details of the case, a theft conviction could bar you from certain professions, cause you to lose a professional license or jeopardize your immigration status. Any conviction on your record could also make it harder to find a job or get approved for housing or credit.
