Criminal Mischief


Jorge's criminal mischief case was filed as a felony because his aunt claimed he did $5,000 worth of damage to her car (which was worth less than $2,000). Jorge's aunt was an unstable woman with several felony cases on her criminal record. Jorge's criminal case stemmed from the fact that his aunt was trying to prevent him from seeing his father, who was staying with her at the time. The prosecutor was finally convinced of the alleged victim's unstable nature and agreed to reduce his felony to a misdemeanor if Jorge would pay a small amount toward the repairs on her car. That misdemeanor probation was deferred and the case has now been dismissed.
