Criminal Trespass

Criminal Trespass

In essence, trespassing is being somewhere you are not supposed to be. To some people, this might not sound like a big deal, but it is important to take these charges seriously. Just like with other types of criminal convictions, it

can impact your ability to get jobs and even rent an apartment.

Criminal trespass 1° is when you knowingly enter or remain in a building unlawfully. The key here is whether you were notified. Unfortunately, for some people, they receive notice by way of a piece of paper, and they choose to never read it and then get in trouble. For others, they were under the influence of a chemical and did not understand or did not care about what was going on. A common example is an individual getting thrown out of a bar but then coming back or being asked to leave a bar but refusing to do so. Criminal trespass 1° is a gross misdemeanor.

On the other hand, Criminal trespass 2° is a misdemeanor. Criminal trespass 2° is just like 1°, except a building is not involved. An example would be someone loitering in a non-building parking lot despite receiving notice not to be there.

"From start to finish with the DUI process Jason Newcombe's office has been more than helpful, friendly, honest and respectful.From the beginning, Jason was on our side and fighting our battle with us. He flat out laid out our options honestly and gave us his opinion on which was the best way to go, but never made the decision for us. Jason is very professional yet personable.
