Definition of Criminal Mischief in Arapahoe County

In Arapahoe County, and throughout Colorado, the Definition of Criminal Mischief is as follows:

"A person commits criminal mischief when he or she knowingly damages the real or personal property of one or more other persons, including property owned by the person jointly with another person or property owned by the person in which another person has a possessory or proprietary interest, in the course of a single criminal episode."

The severity of the charges depends on the value of the damaged items. For example - if the item damaged is over $1000, you could be charged with a felony, and if under $1000, you could be charged with a misdemeanor.

Adams County Criminal Mischief and Domestic Violence Example

About two weeks ago, at a wholesale club, I witnessed a couple in an intense argument, during which the woman threw her purse at the windshield of their car. There must have been something heavy in her purse, because half of the windshield was cracked. The couple continued to argue as the woman entered the car, and she kicked and hit the man as he tried to get her to leave the car. This woman, in the heat of her anger, probably did not realize that her actions could get her charged with Domestic Violence as well as Criminal Mischief in Adams County.
