DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY
What is Destruction of Property?
Destruction refers to destroying, injuring, or defacing property belonging to someone else. The charge and potential sentence you face for this Maryland property damage offense depends wholly on the value of the damage committed.
What can happen to me if accused of Destruction of Property?
Damages GREATER than $500: you will face misdemeanor charges and a maximum sentence of up to 3 years in prison and fines of up to $2,500.
Damages LESS than $500: the charge is still a misdemeanor but the potential sentence is up to 60 days and fines reaching $500.
