Falls Township Criminal Defense Lawyer

An arrest is something that has the potential to destroy your life. Even if you are found not guilty in a court of law in Falls Township, you might find that your life and reputation are tarnished. If you’re found guilty, you might find your life becomes impossible once you’re released from jail. There is no simple way to say that, but an arrest can ruin your life. An arrest can make you unemployable. It can prevent you from being able to keep your family. It can even prevent you from gaining access to your children’s school so you can watch them excel in sports or clubs depending on the type of crime you’re found guilty of committing. Your life is better than that, which is why you need a criminal defense attorney on your side. In Falls Township, property crimes are among the most common, and our offices are well-versed in handling these cases for the accused.

What is a Property Crime?

Property crime is anything that involves any form of vandalism, theft, or burglary. Many of these crimes are committed by teens and young adults who don’t quite grasp the significance of their actions. There are property crimes that are considered minor and insignificant, and some are more serious. Unfortunately, the number of property crimes that occur in Falls Township has increased significantly in recent years, and that means the courts are being harsher issuing punishments to those guilty of a crime. It’s imperative you contact a criminal defense attorney if you are accused of a property crime.

Property crimes are typically immature and childish crimes committed by those who simply don’t understand the consequences of their actions. They act out at the moment, they do things they think are funny to get a laugh or fit in, and they have no regard for the implications of their actions. Teens and young adults are the most common offenders in property crime cases, and you don’t want your child in trouble with the law because you chose not to use a criminal defense attorney and their assistance.

What are the Most Common Property Crimes?

The most commonly occurring property crimes in Falls Township often include the following.

– Keying a car
– Egging a house
– Egging a car
– Spray painting the property of others (sometimes referred to as tagging or graffiti)
– Carving names into benches or trees
– Slashing tires
– Breaking windows
– Stealing items from schools in a prankster manner

While these might not sound like major offenses, they are just that. A child who makes these mistakes is entering a life of crime they might not be able to overcome without immediate help. If they are found guilty in a Falls Township court of law, they might face fines, they might face time in jail or a criminal detention facility, and they might end up with a criminal record.

It’s important to note that while young people are the most likely to commit property crimes, they are not the only people who are committing property crimes. Those who feel victimized, those who feel wronged in a relationship, and those seeking retribution against someone they feel wronged them might also look to property crimes as a way of revenge. The best thing you can do is avoid damaging anyone’s property. The second best thing you can do is call a criminal defense attorney.

Call An Attorney

While an attorney might not always get your charges dropped, we can certainly help with your punishment at the very least. Our goal is to end up with a not-guilty verdict for you in a court of law, but we will also work to reduce your sentence so it’s more manageable. You and your child deserve to have the help you need in your life, and our offices and the team of legal professionals are here to help.
