Vandalism Charges

Juvenile Defense Attorney

When one says the word vandalism it sounds like something that amounts to some graffiti and tagging traffic signs. And often that is the case, but not always. There are times when for whatever reason poor decisions are made by good people and those people are charged with real crimes with substantial penalties.
