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.

Mr. Newcombe is an amazing lawyer. My DUI case seemed hopeless. But, he was relentless and just kept fighting and fighting. Right when all hope had seemed lost, we brainstormed and came to a conclusion that helped my case tremendously! I couldn't be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.
