Criminal Damage Act 1971 Overhaul

Comment 27th July 2010

If someone damages or violates your possessions or premises without your permission – written or verbal then they have committed a criminal offence.

Why does this matter?

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) were only dealing with small proportions of these cases because they kept downgrading a criminal damage offence to civil or burglary.

To restore some justice to the judicial system there needs to be a clear distinction that if you intentionally damage something belonging to someone else then you wll pay the penalty.

That penalty will be a prison sentence proportional to the severity of the crime.
