Trespassing

Trespassing is the act of entering someone else’s property without permission. While this crime is usually a misdemeanor, certain circumstances could make it a felony. Whether you are facing felony or misdemeanor trespassing charges, a skilled Tampa criminal attorney from our firm can help you fight these accusations.

Many people mistakenly believe that misdemeanor offenses are not worth the expense of a Tampa criminal lawyer, but this is a foolish belief that can change the rest of your life for the worst. A second degree misdemeanor can result in a jail sentence of up to 60 days and you can be forced to pay up to $500 in fines. To make matters worse, this criminal conviction will remain on your record and may haunt you for the rest of your life as you search for employment and housing.

Fortunately, there are a number of defenses open to a top Tampa criminal attorney who is hired to defend against a trespassing charge. In many cases, people accused with this crime were ejected from a business and refused to leave. You can fight these accusations and win. If you were charged with associated accusations such as disorderly conduct, burglary or resisting arrest, we can help you fight these charges as well.

If you entered the property while carrying a weapon, you may even be charged with a felony. That means you will not only face up to five years in prison, but you will also lose your right to carry firearms, to vote and to hold public office.

If you have been accused of trespassing, do not take chances with your Tampa criminal lawyer. Call us today to schedule a free initial consultation. We look forward to helping you.
