Property Offences Including Theft

There are a number of offences relating to property. This includes larceny, break and enter, malicious damage (reckless or deliberate) and others. Damaging property can also be considered a domestic violence related offence which may warrant an Apprehended Domestic Violence Order to follow. It could also involve compensation for the victim if guilt has been established.

Therefore, a person charged with a property related offence may face heavy criminal punishment including gaol as well as having to pay a sum of money to repair or replace the damaged property.
