Central Florida Criminal Defense. Criminal defense in Orlando, and surrounding areas. The criminal offense of trespass is a commonly charged and prosecuted criminal offense in Orlando, Orange County, Osceola County, Seminole County, Volusia County, or Brevard County. This charge can be particularly frustrating for the citizens of Central Florida because sometimes the trespass charge does not even require a formal "trespass warning" by a Law Enforcement Officer. Instead, a citizen of Central Florida could be arrested simply for being verbally told to leave by someone who has the authority to legally trespass someone. While most trespass crimes are relatively minor, some trespass offenses, such as Trespass on a Construction Site, are a 3rd Degree Felony punishable by up to five years in the state prison. There are several legal and factual defenses to the crime of trespass, that can only be taken advantage of by an experienced criminal defense attorney.
A criminal trespass offense is a crime with potentially serious consequences, and no person should attempt to resolve their case without first consulting with an attorney.
