Get Help Handling Vandalism Charges with a Vandalism Lawyer
The state of California uses Penal Code §594 to prosecute most acts of vandalism. Our team can provide you with legal support if you are facing either misdemeanor or felony charges for vandalism here in El Monte. We know the importance of building a defense quickly after you are arrested.
Our team can immediately work to protect your rights by:
- Advising you during legal questioning
- Working to block evidence that was obtained illegally
- Monitoring the police as they investigate your case
In many situations, we can work with prosecutors to secure a plea bargain for you to perhaps reduce the penalties you are facing.
However, to accept a plea bargain, you should know that you must plead guilty to a lesser charge. This means you will have a guilty charge on your criminal record. We can review your plea bargain and reject it if it is not fair to you. Reach out to our El Monte team by calling (310) 997-4688.
We’ll Help You Build a Strong Defense
You don’t have to just accept a conviction for a vandalism charge. We can work to resolve your charges out of court. We can also try to get them dismissed completely. If your case must go to court, our team is prepared to build a strong defense for you. We can work to show that:
- You accidentally damaged, defaced, or destroyed someone’s property.
- You were falsely accused of vandalism.
- You were wrongfully arrested for vandalism.
- You were mistakenly identified as someone else.
Our team will review the facts of your case and work to help you avoid jail time or fines.
Possible Infraction Charges for Vandalism
In some situations, you may only face an infraction for a vandalism accusation under Penal Code §640.5. Infractions are not handled as harshly as misdemeanor or felony charges in El Monte.
Note that the court usually only considers the first offense an infraction. Subsequent charges under PC 640.5 can lead to misdemeanor charges.
