What is Property Crime?
Property crimes are related to theft and destruction of another's property. If you have been arrested and charged with criminal damage to property, then you could face second-degree misdemeanor charges, or much more serious charges. If the value of the damage is less than $250, then you will not be tried before a jury, only a judge will be present who will determine whether or not you are guilty.
If the value of the damage is more than $250, then you will face a jury trial where your attorney will be able to cross examine any witnesses, challenge evidence, and fight aggressively for your freedom. Depending on the circumstances of your charge, you could face extensive prison time, hefty fines, and other penalties for conviction.
