Malicious Mischief

Have you been charged with malicious mischief?

Washington malicious mischief lawyers from our firm can help!

In Washington State, there are three classifications of malicious mischief, also known as property destruction.

Malicious mischief in the third degree is a gross misdemeanor and deals with property damage totaling up to $750. If you are convicted of this type, you could spend up to a year in jail and be required to pay up to a $5,000 fine.

If the property damaged is valued between $750 and $5,000, it is a Class C felony and classified as malicious mischief in the second degree. If convicted, you could pay a fine of up to $10,000 and spend five years in prison.

The last classification is malicious mischief in the first degree, referring to property damage in excess of $5,000. This is a Class B felony and is punishable by up to ten years in prison and a $20,000 fine. If you have been accused of any type of malicious mischief, you need a Washington criminal lawyer on your side to try to avoid these serious penalties.
