In the State of Florida, criminal mischief is a misdemeanor exception meaning that a police officer does not have to personally observe the alleged vandalism in order to make an arrest. If the total damage is valued at less than $1000 then the offense is considered a misdemeanor. If the damage alleged to have been valued at more than $1000 the offense is considered a felony subjecting a defendant to up to 5 years in state prison. If a person has a previous conviction for criminal mischief then the offense is treated as a felony regardless of the value of the damage. If $200 or more of damage is alleged to have been sustained by a place of worship, then the offense is also treated as a felony under Florida law. Quinn Law, P.A. has extensive experience defending both adults and juveniles who are being charged with vandalism and criminal mischief offenses.
