Malicious Mischief Attorney Vancouver WA

One of the most commonly charged domestic violence charges is Malicious Mischief.  The most commonly prosecuted type is Malicious Mischief in the Third Degree or Malicious Mischief 3.  This charge is a gross misdemeanor charge where a person knowingly and maliciously damages the property of another.  This is most commonly seen in the domestic violence context, because couples may get into a fight and then start breaking things.

In the context of marriage, you can even get charged for Malicious Mischief if you break your own belongings, so long as the alleged victim also has a claim of ownership over the property.  For example, if you and your spouse get into a fight at home and you break a dinner glass, you might be charged with malicious mischief because your broke your wife’s dinner glass (even though it is also your dinner glass).

Being charged with Malicious Mischief in the Third Degree most often will result in a mandatory arrest, imposition off a domestic violence no-contact order, and potential loss of firearm rights.

Because it is a gross misdemeanor charge, you could also face up to 364 days in jail and up to a $5,000 fine.  All for breaking a dinner glass.  It is important then to consult with a domestic violence lawyer about your case at the earliest opportunity, so you can try to get your life back on track.  We offer a free consultation on every case, so there is no risk in calling.

What Our Clients Say About Us

Roger handled my case promptly and painlessly. We are from out of state and had spoken with quite a few attorneys in the area before we made the trip. Roger was middle of the road cost-wise (which was truly fair)and was clearly competent, handling the case in one trip over as oppose to the two or even three trip process many of the others were communicating would be the case. I would hire again without a second thought. Thanks again Roger.

Roger Priest was my Criminal Attorney for a DUI case I had in 2018. Through out the whole process he was in contact and always was reassuring! He gave his honest opinion on rather or not if my case would be worth going to trial, which is hard to come by! Today I left the courtroom a free man to come home to my family with a lot of tension lifted off my shoulders because of how he was articulate and presented my defense. I am very lucky to have him in my corner and to be spared. I will take this experience as a wake up call because these opportunities don\\\'t come too often! Mr. Priest definitely deserves a 5 star rating for his devotion and overall performance.

Roger Priest was referred to me by another lawyer (who could not take my case). Out of the 3 lawyers I reached out to Mr. Priest was willing to hear my case and not just try and convince me to take the easy route and plead out. He was informative, honest, and very tactical (in his approach with my case). Mr. Priest not only kept me updated with his plans and what to except he involved me in every aspect I could be in. He was very approachable and kind. I won my case, I wouldn’t have if I had gone with another lawyer. I am very satisfied with having had Roger Priest defend me. I hope to never have to use his services again but definitely would rehire him again (I wish I could hire him as my divorce attorney).

I recently consulted Roger for my first and only legal matter. He explained at length the legal ramifications that i was facing and he listened closely to all my questions and concerns. He was very attentive and empathic towards my situation and did not rush through things. I would highly recommend Roger to anyone I know seeking legal representation.
