Criminal Trespassing in Olympia

arrestMost people understand that trespassing means going or being someplace where you are not allowed to be. Sometimes the charges will arise out of situations where there was a misunderstanding and sometimes lots of alcohol was involved… Either way, it is important to take the charge seriously because your case might be a lot more complicated than what you imagine.

A criminal trespass charge is broken down into two different degrees which indicate the seriousness of the offense. The more serious offense is criminal trespass 1° which means you knowingly entered or remained unlawfully in a building. This charge is a gross misdemeanor which means the maximum penalty is 364 days in jail and a $5,000 fine. A common example for this charge is being thrown out of a bar and being told not to return but then you actually go back.

Slightly less serious is criminal trespass 2°. This charge is a misdemeanor which means the maximum penalty is 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. You are charged with this when you knowingly enter or remain unlawfully on someone’s property – but the property is not a building.

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.

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.
