Mischief Under 5000 Lawyer In Toronto
(4) Every one who commits mischief in relation to property:
- (a) is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years; or
- (b) is guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction.
Whether a person is charged with Mischief over Five Thousand Dollars or Mischief Under Five Thousand Dollars depends on the value of the property damaged not the amount of the damage.
We are often able to negotiate a withdrawal of these charges provided restitution is made and/or the damage is repaired.
This is also an example of number of offences that arise in a domestic context. You are permitted to damage or destroy your own property. However, if property is co-owned, a mischief charge can be laid.
Accidental damage does not support a conviction.

What Clients Say Farid
I switched lawyers in between my court proceedings as my other lawyer was not responding to any of my inquiries and not attending my court dates. I was involved In a domestic matter and had two pending charges. I interviewed many lawyers and decided to go with Mr ZAMANI because of his professionalism. He got my charges withdrawn and on top of that answered every single one of my questions with great knowledge and expertise. One of the best lawyers I have ever come across and he has a great network and support group who he works with. He is very professional and an exceptional all around lawyer. If anyone needs a lawyer who will be by on their side hand by hand and who will literally give them a peace of mind in a legal matter look no further than Mr ZAMANI.- AJ AF
