Graffiti is a potential example of vandalism, as is any other act that damages, defaces, or destroys property.

At first glance, a vandalism charge may not seem too serious. In California, however, severe penalties can be imposed if you are convicted of vandalism, including jail time and significant fines. A Newport Beach criminal defense attorney can advise you of your rights and how to best approach these charges.
