Youth Property Damage and Vandalism

Allegations of property damage or vandalism can be frightening; the immediate consequences—including substantial fines and juvenile detention—can be severe, but the long-term consequences of a conviction can dramatically reduce the opportunities available to your child later in their life. If your son or daughter has been accused of engaging in property damage or vandalism in any way, it is highly advisable that you consult with an attorney as soon as possible.

Property Damage and Vandalism Commonly Prosecuted Against

Property damage and acts of vandalism may be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony, the designation largely depending upon the extent of property damage and whether the accused youth is a repeat offender. Among the most commonly prosecuted forms of property damage and vandalism are:

  • Graffiti
  • Breaking windows
  • Slashing tires
  • Burglary and theft
  • Arson
  • Breaking and entering

The implications of a property damage or vandalism conviction can be far reaching for youth offenders. Experienced legal representation may be critical to either reducing the charges leveled against your son or daughter or, in some circumstances, altogether eliminating them.
