Criminal allegations involving property destruction can encompass a wide range of behaviors, from simple acts of graffiti to the breaking of windows and other, large-scale acts. Larceny is a theft crime and the potential consequences are often based on the value of the item. Regardless of the type of offense, all criminal charges need to be taken seriously. A conviction for even a relatively minor crime will leave you with a permanent criminal record which can have a negative impact on numerous areas of your life. That is why it is important to seek advice from an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
