Criminal Mischief is the crime of destroying another person’s property. It is a knowing offense – meaning that the defendant has to know that he or she is damaging the property. In other words, accidental damage is never considered to be Criminal Mischief. The seriousness of this crime is based upon the value of the property that has been destroyed.
A defendant is guilty of Criminal Mischief even in the event that the defendant is part owner of the property with the victim. In such a case, the defendant is guilty even if the item purchased is damaged.
