Attorney Arthur Pressman Discusses the Penalties for Trespassing

I often have clients who have been charged with a violation of trespass. Trespass is not a criminal offense. If you have been convicted of simple trespass, this is a noncriminal violation which has a maximum penalty of up to 15 days in jail. When one remains on the premises of another without permission, they may be charged with trespass and should contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer to defend you in this matter.

What if I am Charged with Reckless Endangerment of Property?

If you have been charged with reckless endangerment of property, you are accused of a Class B misdemeanor or criminal offense. You can get up to 90 days in jail if you’re convicted of this. When one engages in conduct of a reckless nature which could cause property damage that exceeds a value of $250, that person is said to have committed the crime of reckless endangerment of property.
