Phoenix Trespassing Defense Attorney
What are Trespassing Charges?
A criminal trespassing charge entails someone unlawfully entering a house
or residence belonging to another person. It can also involve entering
vacant land or other property marked "no trespassing". Although
it may not sound like a very serious crime, if one enters someone's
residence illegally the charge could be a felony, depending on certain
circumstances. Someone convicted of such a crime could face stiff penalties
which can include:
- Community Service
- Probation for up to 3 years
- Fines, surcharges and restitution
- Jail sentence in a county jail
- Up to two years in an Arizona State Prison
When facing trespassing charges, involving a lawyer as early in the process
as possible is important. Many times a trespassing charge is a simple
misunderstanding, where someone may enter property that is not clearly
marked or appears vacant. Or a landlord/tenant dispute can result in a
tenant accusing a landlord of trespassing. There are many legal strategies
our firm can provide you to challenge the charges against you.
