Accused of vandalism or destroying property? In Florida, you can face criminal mischief charges if you willfully and maliciously damage or vandalize public property or the private property of another person. As the result of a single, foolish act, you could end up with a lifetime criminal record. However, it is possible to get a fresh start and second chance.
At The Umansky Law Firm, we work to see that an arrest for criminal mischief does not haunt you for the rest of your life. Our criminal attorneys represent juveniles and adults who are arrested for damaging property, destroying, or placing graffiti on property in Orlando and other communities in Central Florida. With more than 60 years of combined experience, our Orlando criminal mischief lawyers can provide insight and information that you need to understand your rights and options.
Criminal mischief can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the amount of damage and the type of structure that was damaged.

As with all types of crimes, the penalties for a conviction on a criminal mischief charge are dependent on the level of the charge. Below are some of the general consequences you may be facing if you are convicted:
