Vandalism means to damage property without the owner's permission, and it is illegal in Nevada. Vandalism laws apply to both public and private property. It does not matter whether the property is real estate, vehicles, or personal belongings. Vandalism also goes by the name “malicious mischief” or “malicious destruction of property.”
We have decades of experience defending vandalism charges in Nevada. Three of the common defenses to vandalism charges are:
- The defendant did not act willfully or maliciously.
- The defendant had the owner's consent.
- The defendant was falsely accused.
Nevada vandalism penalties may include fines, restitution, community service, a suspended driver's license, and possibly incarceration. Vandalism may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the circumstances of the case.
