    so basically i got fucked this weekend, me and my friend were snagged by the men in blue. long story short we bombed various billboards in the city of wind and we were about to go back to my friends car when a few squads pulled up. we led them on a 1 hour chase through backyards,alleys, and rooftops but we couldn't shake 'em. i saw my guy get cought so i went back to his car cuase he leaves an extra key in his glovebox but as soon as i hoped into his car i was swarmed by cops with no escape. so basically i got charged with 720 ILCS 5/21-1.3, i need to know what the fuck this means and how bad i am fucked. thanks for you help

    by the way im from chicago, i dont know if the laws vary from city to city

    ยง 21-1.3. Criminal defacement of property.





    (a) A person commits criminal defacement of property when the person knowingly damages the property of another without his or her consent by defacing, deforming, or otherwise damaging the property by the use of paint or any other similar substance, or by the use of a writing instrument, etching tool, or any other similar device.





    (B) Criminal defacement of property is a Class A misdemeanor for a first offense if the damage to the property does not exceed $300. Criminal defacement of property is a Class 4 felony if the damage to property does not exceed $300 and the property damaged is a school building or place of worship. Criminal defacement of property is a Class 4 felony for a second or subsequent conviction or if the damage to the property exceeds $300. Criminal defacement of property is a Class 3 felony if the damage to property exceeds $300 and the property damaged is a school building or place of worship. In addition to any other sentence that may be imposed for a violation of this Section that is chargeable as a Class 3 or Class 4 felony, a person convicted of criminal defacement of property shall be subject to a mandatory minimum fine of $500 plus the actual costs incurred by the property owner or the unit of government to abate, remediate, repair, or remove the effect of the damage to the property. To the extent permitted by law, reimbursement for the costs of abatement, remediation, repair, or removal shall be payable to the person who incurred the costs. In addition to any other sentence that may be imposed, a court shall order any person convicted of criminal defacement of property to perform community service for not less than 30 and not more than 120 hours, if community service is available in the jurisdiction. The community service shall include, but need not be limited to, the cleanup and repair of the damage to property that was caused by the offense, or similar damage to property located in the municipality or county in which the offense occurred. If the property damaged is a school building, the community service may include cleanup, removal, or painting over the defacement. In addition, whenever any person is placed on supervision for an alleged offense under this Section, the supervision shall be conditioned upon the performance of the community service.

    If its the first offense it should get dropped to criminal mischief. B misdemeanor. 6 months probation. Get a lawyer and have him let the judge know you are indegent. You will not have to pay any fines or restoration. Holler back.

    Well heres the deal.. Chicago?? ehh sorry to hear that.. one of the worst penalty systems..

    Do not speak or say anything without a lawyer present.

    That is easily the BIGGEST thing people fuck up with.. trust me on this.. even the littlest shit you slide out and they pass off non-chalantly will come to haunt you in the end.

    dood honestly your really fucked

    3x times the charges means 3x more jail time

    unless you wanna sit in jail.

    call up whoever you can borrow whatever money you can

    and get your ass a lawyer ASAP.

    thats the only solution unless you wanna plead guilty and just take whatever they give you (which will fuck you till you die, cuz your record isnt going away)

    get a lawyer
    get a lawyer
    get a lawyer
    get a lawyer

    some of them take credit cards even

    well, it aint THAT bad... sounds like they never saw you in the act. though, they might say they saw you in the report. if it just says they got a call, it'll be tough to prove it's you. only prob is that you were found in the car of your friend. just say that, while he was chased, he called you up to pick up his car. you should be fine.. as long as you kept your mouth shut, and your friend did. if you can get a real good lawyer, you'll get off scott free; if you are an adult, i reccommend spending the money... especially since you'll have to pay the restitution + fines, if convicted... though your boy pays half the rest if you're convicted. so, if you get off, and he doesn't... hit him back w/ some cash.
