When Can You Be Charged With Defacing Property?
A person who, without consent of the owner, paints, draws, writes or otherwise defaces the surface of property by use of paint, spray paint, ink or any other substance or object commits the crime of defacing property.
Defacing property is typically a class two misdemeanor that carries additional penalties depending on the extent of the property damage and the number of previous offenses. While it may seem like a minor infraction (can't they just paint over your graffiti?), the law takes this property crime very seriously.
