If a person knowingly and unlawfully enters or remains on a Tacoma premises belonging to someone else, they could be charged with criminal trespassing in Washington. This crime is often committed in relation to Tacoma commercial buildings, but it may also apply to trespassing on construction sites, empty lots, and private residential homes.

For example, a person charged with criminal trespassing may have forgotten their identification, or may not have been aware that they were on private property when they were arrested. These facts still need to be presented to the prosecutor, so you should discuss the details with one of our qualified Tacoma trespassing lawyers.
