Criminal Mischief Attorney / Lawyer in Douglas County, C.R.S. 18-4-501

criminal-mischief-graffiti-.jpgIn the world of criminal law, Criminal Mischief is the crime that is misapplied by police most often. The District Attorney's Office in Arapahoe, Douglas, and Denver County will routinely attempt to charge you or a loved one with the crime of destroying someone else's property, no matter how it was broken. The best way to fight an alleged law violation is to understand the law and its weaknesses. In this case, it seems that the police often assume that if any property is broken, they can charge you with this crime.

This Broad Law is an Easy Target

The law of criminal mischief is overbroad and can be attacked by a lawyer fairly easily. In some cases, the police charge a person who knowingly damages the property of another. However, in most cases a person is charged with breaking property of another when the person broke the property accidentally. This is where a criminal defense attorney in Jefferson, El Paso, and Elbert County earns their pay. With the proper attack by your counsel, the case can be thrown out because the property wasn't damaged intentionally - a required element.

An Example of Criminal Mischief Charges

Imagine that your girlfriend is yelling and as you are backing away, you trip and put your elbow through the sheetrock in your home. Unfortunately, a neighbor heard the commotion and called the police in Parker, Aurora, or Arvada. When cops arrive, you admit that you put a hole in the drywall and before you know it, you are on your way to the detention facility for charges of Criminal Mischief with a Domestic Violence enhancer. Your life will forever be changed because the police were looking for an arrest and you told them you damaged property. Even though the damage was unintentional, you are still forced to pay a bond, hire an attorney, and try to defend your good name.

By a criminal case in Adams, Weld, and Clear Creek County, you do not want to risk your livelihood on a conviction for a crime you didn't commit. Thankfully, you have a friend you can turn to that knows how to fight the government and the false allegations brought against you. Our criminal defense lawyers battle the government every day to ensure the best possible outcome for our clients.

So, if you or a loved one have been charged with Criminal Mischief, be smart, exercise your right to remain silent and call our lawyers at 303-731-0719, today. Together, we can protect your future.
