Misdemeanor 1 charge for recklessly damaging property in Arizona.

Customer Question

Misdemeanor 1 charge for recklessly damaging property in Arizona. There is no evidence to support a reckless charge. The investigating officer made two false statements about property damage. Can he face any kind of charges?

Probably not. You are going to have to prove that he knowingly made false statements and that is a pretty high burden to meet. Being wrong (false) and being wrong (lying) are two very different things.


You did not offer any facts to support your question, so this is the best I can do. Keep in mind that different witnesses often perceive things differently and none are culpable.

Please opt out. I would like an Arizona attorney.
