Criminal Mischief

Criminal Mischief is a crime that can be a felony or a misdemeanor in Florida. Attorney Albert Quirantes has represented many people charged with criminal mischief. People are often arrested for this crime while arguing with someone else. The argument gets out of hand and property is damaged out of anger.

A criminal mischief is committed when someone willfully and maliciously damages, in any way, a victim’s real or personal property.


If the damage caused is $200.00 or less, the criminal mischief is considered a second-degree misdemeanor punishable by up to 60 days in jail. If the damage is valued at over $200.00, but less than $1000.00, the criminal mischief is considered a first-degree misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail. If the damage is $1000 or over, the crime can be prosecuted as a Felony in Florida.

Criminal mischief in Florida is also a crime that can be elevated based on your prior convictions. This means that if you have been convicted of misdemeanor criminal mischief in your past and are now facing another criminal mischief charge, the state attorney can file the misdemeanor as a felony in Florida.​
