Trespassing: the basics of this type of criminal charge

Any type of criminal charge is a threat to your well-being and your future interests. Regardless of the nature of the specific charges against you, a conviction could lead to time behind bars, expensive fines and other consequences that could negatively impact your life in various ways. You would be wise to never underestimate any type of criminal allegation.

If charged with a crime of trespassing, you may not know what you are up against. These allegations can be damaging to your reputation and opportunities, and a conviction can bring harsh penalties. It is beneficial for your future to start planning your defense as soon as possible.

What does a trespassing charge involve?

Trespassing is a crime that involves the unlawful entry into another person or party’s Florida property. Often, trespassing charges accompany other types of criminal charges, such as robbery or theft. You may find it helpful to understand the following facts about crimes involving trespassing: 

  • In order to build a criminal case of trespassing against you, the prosecution must be able to prove that you intentionally entered someone’s property without permission.
  • It can be difficult to get a conviction without proof you knew you were entering onto someone’s land without permission, such as evidence of a verbal warning, clear signage or written warnings.
  • Trespassing may not seem like a serious crime, but it can lead to grave consequences. It may also be grounds for civil action against you.

As with any other types of criminal charge, you would be wise to start by seeking a full understanding of your legal options and ways you can fight back against these charges. When it is your future and freedom on the line, there is no such thing as a small criminal charge or minor consequences.

The importance of quick action

When building a defense, it is prudent to take quick action to initiate this process. Delays can lead to issues and a potential compromise of your rights. It is smart to protect yourself, even if you think the case against you is weak or you are not yet facing formal charges.

Trespassing and violations of personal property rights can be complex. Defendants benefit from having the guidance of a person experienced in criminal defense cases, specifically fighting against trespassing crimes. If you are unsure of where to begin, a complete evaluation of your case and explanation of your options can be helpful.
