Defenses to Vandalism & Trespassing Charges

Even the smallest act of vandalism or trespassing can result in felony charges in Bergen County. However, when you are charged with the criminal offense in Bergen County, you are allowed to assert any argument in court that explains or justifies your alleged behavior. Some defenses that may help fight your charges include the following:

  • You were falsely accused
  • You lacked the required malicious intent
  • You own the property in question
  • You damaged the property by mistake
  • You are the victim of mistaken identity
  • You had permission from the owner of the property
  • For most of us, “vandalism” or “trespassing” brings to mind an image of neighborhood kids riding around with their friends and smashing mailboxes or running through yards, however; it is a serious criminal offense and will require professional legal assistance.
