Fighting Criminal Mischief Charges in Boulder or Denver
A criminal mischief charge can be either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the value of the property that was damaged. We are experienced at how to defend these charges and can explain your rights to you no matter what charge you face, including:
- Class two misdemeanors — property damage is less than $500
- Class one misdemeanors — property damage is between $500 and $999
- Class four felonies — property damage is between $1,000 and $19,999
Criminal Mischief Can Be Charged Along With Other Crimes
In many instances, a criminal mischief charge will arise with other criminal charges such as domestic violence, drinking offenses or assault. There is no requirement for an individual to be harmed, property simply has to be damaged. This allows police to charge you when only minor damage has occurred, making it even more important to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.
Whether you are a CU college student or an individual charged with a domestic dispute, we can help protect your best interests.
Jointly Owned Property in Colorado
While it may seem impossible to be charged with a crime for breaking your own property, it is a real concern. If you jointly own property with one or more individuals and you cause damage to that property, you can still be charged with criminal mischief even though you partially own it.
