Washington Property Crimes

If you have been arrested and charged with a property crime in Washington, then you need skilled legal assistance on your side to help you pursue a favorable outcome and to protect your future.

The Law Office of Steve Graham is a firm dedicated to excellent representation, and can provide you with the defense that you need in any of the following areas:

  • Hunting Violations - Hunting laws in Washington are extremely serious, and any failure to adhere to these laws can result in serious criminal charges. If you are convicted of a hunting offense, then you could face jail time and fines among other penalties.
  • Reckless Burning - This crime is different from arson as this crime does not require malicious intent. A fire that gets out of hand can result in reckless burning charges, and if you are convicted of this crime, then you could face serious penalties such as hefty fines and even prison time for serious cases. Mr. Graham has handled a variety of such cases including some of the larger fires in eastern Washington.
  • Malicious Mischief and Vandalism - Various offenses that could be considered malicious and vandalism may include graffiti and other defacement of property without the consent of the owner. It is important that you understand the implications of this offense, and that you are able to defend your case. Malicious Mischief can be charged as first, second, or third degree.
  • Trespassing - Entry onto another person's land or into their building is classified as Trespass in this state and is subject to criminal penalties even if no harm was intended. There are legal defenses to this charge however, and there are certain ways that such property needs to be marked. These legal requirements are prerequisites for a prosecutor to proceed to trial.
  • Gambling or Betting Violations - If you wish to gamble or place bets, then you must be sure that they are legal actions. Betting outside of an authorized pool board in any sport can result in criminal arrest, and severe penalties for a conviction.
  • Timber Theft - Timber theft can include stealing from the possession of another, cutting down trees and taking them from another person's property and other actions. If you are charged with stealing timber, then you will face fines of up to $20,000 and prison time up to ten years.
  • Contraband - If you are charged with the crime of contraband, then you could face extremely harsh penalties for conviction. This crime involves unlawfully possessing, producing, concealing, purchasing, selling, or transporting material items among other unlawful actions.
  • Auto Theft - Stealing a vehicle in the state of Washington is a Class B felony which can carry up to 10 years in prison and up to $20,000 in fines for a criminal conviction. Your case is important to this firm and you may greatly benefit from the representation that the attorney can offer!
