Orlando Trespassing Defense Attorney
Experienced Defense Against Home Invasion Charges In Orlando And Throughout Central Florida
Trespassing in Florida is a lesser-included offense of burglary. However, you can also be charged with trespassing simply for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The consequences are potentially serious. While trespassing is a misdemeanor in most cases, trespassing at a construction site is a felony. Even a misdemeanor conviction would result in a permanent criminal record.
Our defense attorneys have helped many clients charged with property offenses in the past, and would be honored to help you too. Call us to schedule a consultation and discuss the circumstances of your trespassing arrest. Our attorneys are equally capable of challenging your arrest and charge, building a defense based on extenuating circumstances, or negotiating with prosecutors to obtain an outcome that is manageable for you.
What Is Trespassing?
You can be charged with trespassing of a person's structure or conveyance if you enter a person's home or vehicle without being authorized or invited. You can also be charged with trespassing if you enter premises after being put on notice not to enter. Examples of notice include:
- Posting of no trespassing signs on all four corners of a gated property
- A property owner ordering you to leave a property (which is known as being trespassed from property)
- A bar owner ordering you to keep away from the establishment for bad behavior
- A store ordering you to stay away following a shoplifting arrest
Trespassing charges are more serious if a person was in the structure at the time you entered or if you carried a weapon.
Protecting Your Future
As your trespassing defense lawyer, N. Ryan LaBar will carefully evaluate every aspect of your trespassing arrest to determine if you received proper notice of being trespassed from the property. If it is possible to avoid a conviction, that would be the best outcome. However, if you are also charged with burglary, pleading guilty to a trespassing charge may be the least damaging way to resolve the charges.
