How can a person get accused of slashing someone tires when they watch you outside their window?

I went to a friend house to discuss a matter. I thought they wasnt at home but find out they were. I went by there three times and finally seen them in their yard. I notice their tires were slashed. They called the police on me and accused me of slashing their tires. The vehicle was no where near the front door. I went to and they were in the house and the vehicle is in the view of their kitchen and dining room window. I was accused of slashing tires. I stayed till the police came to take the report but I didnt do the crime.

This sounds like a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. As with many criminal cases, innocent individuals are accused of a crime simply for being in the wrong place, and from what it sounds like the people were home and knew that you were there and they decided to blame you for their troubles. When accused of a crime like this, it is important to contact a criminal defense attorney because you want to be able to fight these charges and move on with your life. Why is hiring an attorney so important you may ask? Because depending on the value of the damage will determine the specific charges you are facing and therefore it will determine the severity of the punishment. Generally, if the damage is less than $750, it will be considered as a gross misdemeanor, and if it is higher you could be looking at felony charges and possibly jail time. Contact a criminal defense attorney today to discuss your case!
