Boston Property Crimes Attorney

Property Crimes are Serious Business

Property crimes involve damage to or loss of property, whether through theft or destruction. They are regarded with increasing concern in Massachusetts. Far from being victimless crimes, they negatively affect the economy of the state and the communities in which they take place. Because of this, police and prosecutors are cracking down more than ever on property crimes. If you have been charged with a property crime, you should take it seriously, too.

Depending on the property offense in question, a convicted defendant may face:

  • significant jail time
  • fines and court costs
  • orders to pay restitution
  • suspension of driver’s license
  • probation
  • collateral consequences, such as loss of employment or difficulty finding employment due to a conviction

In other words, an act committed without any real intent to hurt anyone can end up hurting you most of all.
