Juvenile Defense for Vandalism in Arizona
The act of vandalism is completed by a disproportionate percentage of juveniles
compared to adults, perhaps due to the expressive and rebellious natures
of youths. For this reason, when there are reports of vandalism, Arizona
law enforcement and criminal investigators tend to assume that the suspects
will be young adults. Even if your son or daughter had done nothing wrong,
or there is no suitable evidence against them, they could be arrested
and charged with vandalism, criminal damage, and trespassing.
Penalties a juvenile can face if convicted of vandalism include:
Time in juvenile detention
Forced restitution to victims
Difficulty finding employment
Destroyed school reputation
Juvenile crimes and their related convictions weigh heavily on youths, as their lives
are essentially just beginning. It is important to do all that is possible
to protect them from an unforgiving criminal justice system.
Misdemeanor & Felony Vandalism
Adults who have been charged with vandalism might have even heavier penalties
lined up for them. Any sort of criminal conviction can result in jail
time and steep fines paid to the state, and this is only considering misdemeanors.
If the property was heavily damaged by vandalism, such as multiple broken
windows or spray paint all around the building’s perimeter, it may
constitute a felony. Damaging government controlled property, like a post
office or police station, will also likely escalate the charges to a felony,
which includes at least one year incarceration upon conviction in most
