Even if you have been charged with what you feel is minor damage to property, law enforcement has plenty of tactics to investigate and prosecute property crimes and give punishments that seem more severe than the crime. This is partly because it’s common for law enforcement to use the criminal justice system as a collection agency in civil disputes. Additionally, many cases of property crime stem from a dispute about property rights and overexaggerated accusations, so proving guilt isn’t always straightforward.
This is why it’s important to have an experienced lawyer go through your case. If you have been charged with a property crime of any severity, there are options available. There are other options than just pleading guilty.
