Criminal Mischief

The crime of Criminal Mischief involves damage or destruction to another's personal property. The value of the property damaged will determine whether the crime is a felony or a misdemeanor. For example, if the damaged property is valued at $200 or less, it will be a second degree misdemeanor (punishable by not more than 60 days in jail and not more than a $500 fine). However, if the value is more than $200 but less than $1,000, you will be charged with a first degree misdemeanor (punishable by not more than 1 year in jail and not more than $1,000 fine). If the value of the damaged item was more than $1,000, you will be charged with a felony.

Typically, victims usually estimate that the value of the damaged property is worth more than it actually is. Therefore, it is important to be represented by a lawyer who can protect against such unreasonable estimations in value. Convictions for Criminal Mischief will always carry restitution orders. This means that you will be required to reimburse the victim for the damage done.

I had the misfortune of requiring the services of an attorney for representation with a traffic citation. Jordan Kramer came highly recommended and lived up to that recommendation. Mr. Kramer was knowledgable and understanding. His office staff was friendly and his communication system was most efficient. Mr. Kramer saved me a considerable sum of money through his effective representation. B.E.
I would highly recommend Jordan Kramer. He played the angles well for my case, hands down. Jordan is very down to earth counselor and a wise attorney at law. He always kept me up to date with any new information about how my case was going. I hope I never need his professional, aggressive skills again, but if I do Mr. Kramer will be in my corner. C.R.
