Criminal Mischief

Vandalism and Criminal Mischief Defense Attorney, Houston, Texas

The legal term for vandalism, the act of damaging someone's property or vehicle, is called criminal mischief in Texas.

  • Using spray paint to deface someone's property
  • Slashing car tires
  • Breaking windows
  • Keying an automobile
  • Damaging or destroying school property
  • Damaging someone's house

Most vandalism or criminal mischief cases are charged as misdemeanors.

If more than $1,500 worth of property is damaged, the case may be charged as a felony. In either case, it's important to contact a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible to keep the charge from resulting in a permanent criminal record.

You cannot be convicted with criminal mischief if you destroy your own property.

In some cases, complainants can be persuaded not to file charges if you pay restitution for the damage. These negotiations are best handled by your defense lawyer.
