Aggressive South Florida Criminal Defense Lawyer

Criminal mischief is intentionally and maliciously damaging the personnel property of another. This includes acts of vandalism and graffiti. Under Florida criminal statutes, this crime can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the situation. For instance, if the alleged crime caused more than $1,000 in damage, the offense is a felony which is punishable by up to 5 years in Florida state prison. Stiffer penalties may also be imposed for repeat offenses and damage to specific types of property.

Many cases of criminal mischief involve juveniles. If a juvenile is convicted he/she may face revocation or delay of a driver’s license in addition to any penalties for delinquency. They may also be sentenced to community service and the parents may be required to pay a fine.
