Willful vs. Wanton: Property damage attorneys can help
If a charge brought against you or your loved one describes that property was destroyed or damaged “willfully and maliciously,” this suggests vandalism with ill-will and the intent to do harm and this is a felony offense. However, if an act is described as “wanton” it means recklessly and without ill intention, and is seen as a lesser vandalism misdemeanor.

Please note that State laws are always subject to change through the passage of new legislation, rulings in the higher courts (including federal decisions), ballot initiatives, and other means.
