Property Crime Charges in New Jersey
Property crimes involve all types of illegal activities that an individual commits against another’s property. The penalties for this type of crime include jail time, fines, and a permanent criminal record. However an experienced attorney may be able to minimize these harmful outcomes or have the case dismissed completely.
- Burglary – An indictable offense (similar to a felony in some other states), these charges involve illegally entering a structure with intent to commit a crime such as theft or assault. Penalties may be severe if convicted. However, the charges may be completely dismissed if it is shown that any of the four required elements are missing.
- Criminal Mischief – Damage to someone else’s tangible property is at the root of this type of criminal charge. The dollar value of the damage determines the severity of the crime and the penalties, which could include a prison sentence, fines and community service.
- Trespassing – Defined as the “unlicensed presence or entry” on someone else’s property, this crime carries penalties including prison time, fines and probation. The sentence may be harsher in cases of “defiant trespassing,” which involves trespassing in violation of posted or verbal notice against trespassing.
