CHARGES FOR CRIMINAL MISCHIEF | FIRST DEGREE CHARGES
As an experienced Buffalo criminal lawyer, I often represent clients that have been charged with criminal mischief in the first degree. This is a Class B felony. It is a serious, violent felony, punishable by up to 25 years in jail. This is defined when a person damages the property of another by means of an explosive device.
SECOND DEGREE CHARGES
This is a Class D felony offense punishable by up to seven years in a state penitentiary. If you damage another person’s property and the damaged property is valued above $500, the offense if referred to as criminal mischief in the second degree.
FOURTH DEGREE CRIMINAL MISCHIEF CHARGES
A charge of criminal mischief in the fourth degree is a Class A misdemeanor. If convicted the sentence could be one to three years in jail and/or a fine. Criminal mischief occurs when you intentionally damage another person’s property and can also be described as recklessly damaging another’s property. Although this is not specifically an intent crime, you should still call an experienced Buffalo criminal defense attorney.
