Vandalism, Graffiti, Petty Theft

Summer Vacation Can Bring Vandalism, Graffiti, Petty Theft…Criminal Mischief

Summer Days are almost here! Do you know what your kids will be up to?

49th Street Bail Bonds wants you to be aware that summer boredom could lead kids down the wrong path. Kids might think that it is fun or a prank to break a window on a house, key a car, spray paint graffiti, or slash car tires but these are actually crimes that fall into the category of criminal mischief.

Florida Statutes

According to Florida statues, criminal mischief is “when you willfully and maliciously damage any property belonging to someone else. It can be willful or negligent, mischievous or vengeful behavior that results in someone’s property being damaged or destroyed, at some quantifiable cost.” Criminal mischief also encompasses graffiti and vandalism.

Charges for criminal mischief range from a misdemeanor to a felony depending on the amount of the damage and if the person already has a previous criminal mischief charge. Penalties for criminal mischief can include fines, days in jail, probation, and community service. Minors who commit criminal mischief could have to pay fines, perform community service, and have their driver’s license revoked. Criminal mischief is a crime and not a joke!
