Oakland County Property Crime Attorneys

Our Bloomfield Hills Defense Lawyers Are Dedicated to Getting Results

The right to have and maintain your own personal property is one of the most valued rights in the United States. That is why property crimes involving the destruction or damage of property are treated extremely harshly in the state of Michigan. These charges can involve any number of actions, from larceny to invasion, arson to burglary.

Property does not have to be a piece of land, but can include anyone’s house, business location, car, or other object of private property. If the cost of the damage that the property has received is greater than the amount of $1,000, you will be charged with a felony. If you have been accused of a property crime, you need to quickly get in touch with our skilled team at Bloomfield Law Group. Our Oakland County property crime lawyers are determined to support you in getting the help you need.

Call us today at (248) 243-6610 so that you can avoid facing a felony with the accompanying severe punishments that last for the rest of your life.

Types of Property Crimes

In Michigan, there are several categories of property crimes that could be charged against you. Knowing the distinctions will enable you and your attorney to discuss the most effective strategies of defense.

The four primary categories of property crimes include:

  • Home invasion – This type of property crime refers to the event when a person’s house, business, or privately-owned property has been entered, with no consent from the owner, all with the intention of committing a type of crime.

  • Arson – This is another terrible crime, which involves the use of fire to either burn, damage, or completely destroy someone’s property. Legislation in the state of Michigan has become so restricted against arson that you could be facing 10 years in prison as the minimum penalty, with a life sentence as the maximum.

  • Larceny – Larceny is the act of taking property or items which do not belong to you, and keeping them for yourself. Depending on the value of the objects that were stolen, you may have greater or lesser amounts of penalties given.

  • Vandalism – A final category of property crimes is known as vandalism, which refers to when someone has willfully destroyed or damaged property out of a spirit of malice.

Consequences of Property Crimes

Because the range of property crimes is so extensive, this means the possible penalties you could be facing on account of a wrongful property crime accusation are also extremely expansive as well.

Just a few examples of possible consequences you could be facing for such charges include:

  • Being kept in prison or jail for several years
  • Having to pay fines of several thousands of dollars
  • Being forced to have a stained, permanent criminal record
  • Suffering from being denied rental property and housing
  • Denial of insurance
  • Losing your job or being denied of opportunities for your career
  • Having your credentials and license for medicine, law, nursing, or education suspended or denied
  • Having your immigration application denied and even facing the possibility of being sent back to your country of origin
