TITLE OF BILL:
to amend the penal law, in relation to criminal mischief in the third
To raise the monetary damages required for criminal mischief
in the third degree.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 raises the minimum amount of property damage for criminal
mischief in the third degree from $250 to $1000.
Section 2 establishes an effective date.
Historically, the monetary damage thresholds for criminal larceny
were linked. The threshold for larceny was raised to account for
inflation, but the criminal mischief statute was never amended
accordingly. Under current New York law, damaging property in excess
of $250 is a felony, while actually stealing the same property is
only a misdemeanor. This bill would correct this inequality by
adjusting the threshold for criminal mischief in the third degree to
the same level as grand larceny.
On the first of November next succeeding the date on
which it shall have become a law.
