Criminal damage and criminal trespassing are similar offenses that are often committed simultaneously. In many cases, the act of unlawfully entering someone's property is accompanied by the act of committing harm to that property. If you have been charged with one or both of these offenses, an experienced criminal defense lawyer can build the strongest possible case on your behalf. Because laws vary from state to state, you should contact America's Criminal Defense Group to find an attorney who is well acquainted with the laws in your state.
Property damage can occur either as the result of an individual's negligence or through an intentional action to commit harm to another person's land, home, vehicle, fence, or other possession. Any act of defacing, damaging, or altering property without the consent of the owner can be considered criminal property damage. Specific acts that can bring about charges of criminal property damage include cutting down trees, writing graffiti, starting a fire (arson), and breaking windows. The penalties and severity of the charges depend on the value of the damaged property and other factors, which vary from state to state. Contact America's Criminal Defense Group to learn more about the specific laws in your state and to speak with a diligent criminal defense lawyer who may be able to achieve a positive outcome for your case.

Criminal trespassing occurs when an individual unlawfully enters a home, business, automobile, research facility, or other form of property without the owner's permission. To be charged with criminal trespassing, the offender must be aware that he or she is entering onto property without authorization. In many states, trespassing can be considered a criminal act only if it is done for an unlawful purpose, such as injuring a person or property, disrupting a government office, or committing theft or arson. Consult a criminal defense lawyer for details about the trespassing laws that are applicable to your particular case.
