Someone else’s stuff shouldn’t ruin your life.
In California, property crimes involve the taking of, unlawful entry onto or unlawful damage to the property of another person. The extent of the penalty is linked to the value of the property involved and any priors the defendant may have, such that these crimes can either be charged as felonies or misdemeanors and can include hefty fines and, potentially, restitution payments.
