Criminal Trespass in Tacoma

arrestGenerally speaking, trespassing is being someplace which you are not supposed to be. While it might seem like it shouldn’t be considered a big deal because there was no harm, the fact is any type of criminal conviction can impact you negatively. There are two types of criminal trespass.

Criminal trespass 1° is a gross misdemeanor, meaning the maximum penalty is 364 days in jail and a $5,000 fine. This is charged when an individual enters unlawfully or refuses to leave a building when properly asked. A common example is when someone is asked to leave a bar but refuses to do so or it told not to return but does.

Criminal trespass 2° is a misdemeanor which means the maximum penalty is 90 days in jail and $1,000 fine. This form of trespass is like 1° except without the building. So if you unlawfully enter an area or refuse to leave an area which is not a building, then you can face a trespassing 2° charge.

If you have questions about a criminal trespass charge you may be facing, do not hesitate to give our office a call. We will be more than happy to discuss your options and case with you.

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. Christina P.

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. Robert
