A criminal charge for Malicious Mischief involves the destruction of another persons property.
The degree or seriousness level that a person could be charged in Washington deals mainly with the monetary value of the damage caused. The other scenarios that could raise the degree or seriousness lever charged deal with the type of property that was damaged, or whether the property was government property or an aircraft.
A criminal charge of malicious mischief can range from a gross misdemeanor up to a Class B felony. Besides jail or prison time, an individual found guilty of malicious mischief will face large fines, restitution payments for the damage, and possibly treatment if alcohol, drugs, or mental health are involved or even anger management classes. Having a qualified criminal defense attorney fighting for you is important to protect not just your liberty but also the future impact a conviction for this charge can have on you.
