Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
How can I help with this please?
I'm not sure what you mean by where do you stand?Can you ask specific question?
It depends upon your previous relay.
However, the simple act of criminal damageWouldn't normally lead to a custodial sentence.It may lead to a community order depending on the severity of the damage.If it is a small amounts then probably justified although they would be in order for compensation.
It is quite possible that it could just lead to a police caution or a conditional caution.To secure that there you would probably need to pay for the damage.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Well, they could. It depends what it shows and whether they can say that there was no damage before and was after.
CCTV doesn't usually show the keying but it does show actions consistent with it.
Then it depends when the car owner last saw the car damage free.
But Magistrates do quite often convict when they should acquit.
