Property Damage and Vandalism

If a youth knowingly and/or maliciously damages another person’s property, it is known as vandalism, which can be either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the extent of the damage done and that offender’s history of criminal behavior. Some common examples of property damage and vandalism include:

  • Arson (fire-setting)
  • Burglary and theft
  • Breaking windows
  • Slashing tires
  • Breaking and entering
  • Destruction of property
  • Graffiti

Unless the accused youth has an aggressive and qualified defense attorney by his or her side, the penalties for vandalism and property damage are likely to be very harsh.
