Arrested for Criminal Mischief? We Can Help

Criminal mischief incidents often spike around Halloween, but they occur any time of the year. This offense involves crimes against tangible property, such as vandalism, graffiti, or tampering with utility services like electricity, internet, cable, or gas.

According to the Texas Penal Code, criminal mischief is defined as follows:

A person commits an offense if, without the effective consent of the owner, they:

  • Intentionally or knowingly damage or destroy the tangible property of the owner;
  • Intentionally or knowingly tamper with the tangible property of the owner, causing pecuniary loss or substantial inconvenience to the owner or a third person;
  • Intentionally or knowingly make markings, including inscriptions, slogans, drawings, or paintings, on the tangible property of the owner.
