Compared to other crimes, especially the violent and dangerous classifications, criminal trespassing may not sound exceptionally serious or damaging, but a conviction can come with life-changing implications.
While the details and circumstances of the charges will ultimately determine the punishments, prosecutors can file criminal trespassing as either a misdemeanor or a felony. Both types of charges carry harsh punishments. Regardless if you didn’t see a posted “No Trespassing” sign, refused to leave a private residence during an argument, or knowingly trespassed, your case will be met with aggressive prosecutors seeking the maximum punishments.
If you are facing criminal trespassing charges, having an experienced attorney, who was a former prosecutor, handle your case is the best situation for you!
The law is broken down into different degrees of severity and the type of property and provisions determine whether it is charged as a felony or misdemeanor.
Criminal trespassing can also be charged as a domestic violence offense if the property is of an individual in a relationship with the defendant who is asked to leave, and they don’t. The consequences of domestic violence law cases are much more severe than simple criminal trespassing.
Whether your charges came from being unaware of your trespassing, or from an argument with an individual or knowingly violating property rights, criminal trespassing charges are very serious and need to be treated as such.
