Juvenile Vandalism Defense Lawyer in Los Angeles

Facing Juvenile Vandalism Charges in Los Angeles

The experience of having your son or daughter arrested and charged with a crime is possibly one of the most distressing situations that could occur in your life. But by consulting with a juvenile crimes defense lawyer it can often make all the difference between receiving a positive or negative result from the juvenile courts. Vandalism is described as intentionally destroying the property or personal belongings of another. The offense can be deemed either a misdemeanor or felony by California law, based on the damage and monetary value.

Types of vandalism your child can be charged for in California include:

  • Graffiti on school buildings
  • Damage to a Church or School
  • Smashing windows in buildings or vehicles
  • Slashing tires or keying a vehicle

Each one of these types of vandalism offense can have far reaching consequences as it is recognized by the law as a deliberate action of damaging or destroying another's belongings by the minor. Cron, Israels & Stark has been helping families with their juvenile crimes situations in Los Angeles and Santa Monica for some time and can help you as well. It is important to contact our firm right away for the legal representation you need.

What Are The Penalties For Vandalism?

With a first time offense and creating minimal damage, which in California is considered less than $400, the charge leveled against the minor is considered a misdemeanor. Penalties consist of fines, making up the damage one has done, possible community service and 3 years informal probation. Luckily for the juvenile, there is no jail time with this charge. However, if deemed a felony the consequences are far more severe. The juvenile can receive jail time, formal probation, and in some cases have a one-year license suspension. For these reasons it is in your best interest to contact the attorneys at Cron, Israels & Stark without delay. You need strong legal representation when your child is accused of vandalism and especially when it results in a felony charge. Call our office today to set up your appointment.

A skilled legal team improves your chances of dismissal or reduced penalties, so Contact Cron, Israels & Stark today to discuss the facts of your case.
