Florida Criminal Trespass Attorney

Trespass occurs when an individual enters a property or remains on a property without permission. The traditional idea of trespass usually involves a person entering onto land despite a sign warning not to do so. However, trespass can also involve a person who legally enters a store, is asked to leave, and refuses to do so. In order to be convicted of criminal trespass, a prosecutor must prove that you had notice that you were not supposed to be there or remain there.

Because most trespass offenses are charged as misdemeanors, too many people believe that they do not need an attorney to handle their case. However, trespass convictions can have serious consequences such as probation, fines, or even time in jail. For this reason, you should always contact a Florida attorney at the Cobb Criminal Defense Law Firm for help as soon as possible.

Types of trespass charges

There are several different variations of criminal trespass charges under Florida law, including the following:

  • Trespass to a structure or a conveyance (such as a home)
  • Trespass to some other private property (a construction site, for example)
  • Trespass on school property with a firearm
  • Trespass in a school safety zone
  • Trespass on school controlled property without a firearm

In addition to the above charges, the Florida Burglary and Trespass statute also covers the following offenses:

  • Voyeurism
  • Video voyeurism
  • Cave vandalism
  • Fence breaking
  • Illegal sign placement
  • Civil liability for negligence upon agricultural property
