Malicious Destruction of Property

For Defense Against Your Charges, Call My Baltimore Defense Firm: (410) 630-4274.

While it’s not a crime to devalue or destroy someone else’s property, it becomes an issue if the destruction was done willfully and with intent to harm the other person. An act of vandalism can also be considered property destruction if it was committed with reckless intent. If you have been accused of malicious destruction, The Law Office of Mark G. Scheuerman, LLC can help.

Give us a call today at (410) 630-4274.

Malicious destruction of property is considered a misdemeanor in Baltimore, punishable by up to 3 years in prison and/or a fine of $2,500. A good criminal defense attorney can help you prove that the destruction of property was accidental and involved no intent to harm. When this can be proven, the defendant will not be held in prison and/or fined for any amount.

What Is Considered to Be a Malicious Destruction of Property?

For an action to be considered malicious destruction of property, a person must intentionally destroy, deface, or injure the personal or real property of another.

Personal or real property includes:

  • Vehicles
  • Homes
  • Electronic devices
  • Clothing
  • Items of sentimental value
  • Furniture
  • Pets

Vandalism can also be considered property destruction, i.e. slashing someone’s tires, breaking windows, smashing a phone, graffitiing, or anything else done with the intention of reckless destruction. If you are charged with or face the charge of vandalism, the punishment can be less severe.

  • YOU ROCK MARK!

    “I just wanted to thank you from the "bottom of my heart", you are an incredible, amazing person, and a powerfully skilled Attorney. Words can't even describe how important that outcome meant to me, I hope to go forward with my life, I realize, that would have NOT been possible, 🙏without God and your presence on that day. This whole situation has altered my life forever, my career as a RN and a future Psychologist, was all in your hands that day, and you wheeled it, you kept your word...as promised. You remained honest with me about my case...and that is priceless. "Some mistakes take on the form of eternity". I am a little tearful writing this, forgive me if I miss words. You where blessed by God, with a team of Attorneys that found you Mark, you are genuine, stay that way! I was gifted with reading people, in my journey through I came across some intense deceivers, especially, some that I even treat. I saw compassion during our eye to eye contact, and I knew I could trust you. I know you meet many, of unfavorable in character, but your gift to decipher is an attribute, one that becomes of you. My father loved this quote by Aristotle, he passed in 2005, I thought...it fits you. I shall pass on your name for years to come, even though this is one incident in my life that I would like to forget! Thank you again, and God Bless you and your family. Mark, you are building a responsible team of Attorneys, Keep up the great work! YOU ROCK MARK!”
