NY does not have Class C misdemeanors. In any event, no one on this site can evaluate your case without knowing something about it. I suggest you talk this over with your lawyer.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and now handle criminal defense and personal injury/civil rights cases. Feel free to check out my web site and contact me at (212) 577-9797 or via email at Eric@RothsteinLawNY.com. I was named to the Super Lawyers list as one of the top attorneys in New York for 2012.

Not really a great deal. It blows his Youthful offender and it's a lot for a criminal mischief case.

The above information is not a substitution for a meeting whereas all potential legal issues can be discussed.
If the offer is 3 years of probation, it must be a class A misdemeanor that the DA is offering. As said before, its not a great deal, but it depends on other factors that only your attorney knows, like the strength of the prosecutor's case, availability of complaining witnesses, and even the paperwork. The difference between a Crim Mischief 3 and 4 could be only a couple of dollars.
The answering of this question does not create an attorney-client relationship.
