If you have been accused of malicious mischief in Washington State, know that accepting the charges and pleading guilty are not your only options. Our Seattle malicious mischief criminal defense lawyers have the knowledge and skills necessary to have the charges against you reduced or even dropped.

What is Seattle malicious mischief?

Malicious mischief is defined as an individual knowingly and intentionally causing physical damage to the property of another person. Graffiti, “keying” the car of another person, or damaging buildings are common examples of malicious mischief. There are three degrees of malicious mischief, which are most commonly broken down as followed:

  • 3rd degree. A misdemeanor, this charge applies when the damages are under $750. You may receive up to one year in prison and a $5,000 fine.

  • 2nd degree. A class C felony, the charge of 2nd degree Seattle malicious mischief applies when the damage exceeds $750 but is under $5,000. Individuals found guilty may receive up to 5 years in jail and a $10,000 fine.

  • 1st degree. The most serious of the charges, this class B felony applies when the damage exceeds $5,000. You could face up to 10 years in a state prison and up to $20,000 in fines. Your Seattle malicious mischief lawyer will be able to elaborate on your situation and help you understand the charges against you and your options.
Why hire a Seattle malicious mischief attorney?

It’s important to contact Seattle malicious mischief lawyers as soon as possible – and before speaking to law enforcement. As an accused individual, you are afforded certain state and federal constitutional rights that help protect you from making incriminating statements that could affect the outcome of your trail. Claiming your right to remain silent until after consulting a Seattle malicious mischief attorney allows you to understand your situation and know your real rights.

Additionally, hiring a criminal defense attorney ensures that all aspects of your case have been brought to light and that no false evidence or evidence poorly managed by the police can be used against you. Perhaps your case is a simple matter of mistaken identity. Or perhaps you did not intentionally cause damage to the other person’s property. Maybe you are young with no criminal record and feel you deserve a second chance. An experienced and knowledgeable Seattle criminal defense attorney will be able to provide you a fair trial with a fair outcome.

At the Law Offices of Jason S. Newcombe, our team of Seattle criminal defense lawyers understands how difficult it is for you to be charged with a crime. With over 30 years of combined experience, we know the Washington State justice system – and our low flat fees make our services affordable for any Seattle resident.
