    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . In Texas, this means your friend has been accused of damaging the property of another. If the alleged victim is a family member there may be a Domestic Violence component as well. This is a Class B misdemeanor with a range of punishment up to 6 months. Deferred adjudication is available depending on your friend's criminal history. Your friend definitely needs the help of a lawyer.
