Rs 14:56 Simple Criminal Damage To Property

§56. Simple criminal damage to property

A.(1) Simple criminal damage to property is the intentional damaging of any

property of another, without the consent of the owner, and except as provided in R.S. 14:55,

by any means other than fire or explosion.

(2) The provisions of this Section shall include the intentional damaging of a

dwelling, house, apartment, or other structure used in whole or in part as a home, residence,

or place of abode by a person who leased or rented the property.

B.(1) Whoever commits the crime of simple criminal damage to property where the

damage is less than one thousand dollars shall be fined not more than one thousand dollars

or imprisoned for not more than six months, or both.

(2) Where the damage amounts to one thousand dollars but less than fifty thousand

dollars, the offender shall be fined not more than one thousand dollars or imprisoned with

or without hard labor for not more than two years, or both.

(3) Where the damage amounts to fifty thousand dollars or more, the offender shall

be fined not more than ten thousand dollars or imprisoned with or without hard labor for not

less than one nor more than ten years, or both.

(4) In addition to the foregoing penalties, a person convicted under the provisions

of this Section may be ordered to make full restitution to the owner of the property. If a

person ordered to make restitution is found to be indigent and therefore unable to make

restitution in full at the time of conviction, the court shall order a periodic payment plan

consistent with the person's ability to pay.
