Charged with Trespassing in Riverside, CA?
How a Riverside Domestic Violence Attorney Can Help
Trespassing, in its simplest form, is the criminal offense of entering someone else's property without permission and without the authority or right to do so. There are many cases in which the noble or harmless intentions of an individual are mistaken for trespassing. This means that if you were trying to help a person, you could be mistakenly charged with this criminal offense. If you are convicted of this crime, then you could face infraction, misdemeanor, or felony penalties. While most cases are charged as misdemeanors, a felony charge is a possibility. Penalties for misdemeanor convictions include up to six months in jail and up to $1,000 in fines.
Aggravated criminal trespass is the more common trespassing crime that will incur a felony charge. Aggravated criminal trespass occurs when you make a threat to injure another person, and, within 30 days, enter that person's property with the intent to carry out this previous threat. Penalties for conviction of a felony trespass charge include up to 16 months in jail or 2-3 years in prison and up to $2,000 in fines.
