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 couldnt be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.

    Jason has successfully contested and won 3 of my family's traffic tickets. His customer service is incredible and he even called me personally to tell me the outcome of the judge's decision. I would highly recommend Jason Newcombe to anyone in need of an attorney.

    Mr. Newcombe is a fantastic lawyer. When I first called his offices, I didn't know where to turn. I was facing a crazy criminal charge, and he ended up getting it completely dismissed. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. They will fight, not just roll over and try to get you to take a deal. I highly recommend him!

    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. We are completely satisfied with our end result. Couldn't ask for a better lawyer to be on your side.

    I cannot thank Mr. Newcombe and his staff enough. They are awesome. When I first contacted his offices, I didn't know what to do. I was overwhelmed and confused. He did an amazing job, I highly recommend him! I had two cases, and he got both of them dismissed. If you are in trouble, do yourself a favor, give him a call.
