NYC Criminal Trespass Defense Lawyers

Criminal trespassing is a very serious offense. If you are tried for criminal trespassing, you will be in jeopardy of being charged with a misdemeanor or felony. In the event that theft occurred during the trespassing, you may be charged with that as well. Whatever your specific situation, it is best to seek out the assistance of an expert defense lawyer from Spodek Law Group to help you win your case.

If You are Charged with Criminal Trespass

Many people that face criminal trespassing charges are first-time offenders and have no experience dealing with these types of allegations. The truth of the matter is that as soon as you find yourself on the wrong side of the law, you need to contact an attorney immediately.

Our attorneys at Spodek Law Group will work to fight against any convictions or penalties that you may be facing. When it comes to criminal trespass, the details of the crime can quickly elevate the situation from a mere misdemeanor to a serious felony. Only an experienced attorney will be able to understand what these allegations mean, as they do everything in their power to see that you are acquitted.

By speaking with a defense attorney from Spodek Law Group immediately, you’ll be able to determine the long-lasting effect that a criminal record will have on your life. Those effects may result in jail time or a few hours of community service, depending on the quality of your defense team. This is why it is so important to protect yourself by hiring an experienced lawyer.

The Charges of Trespass

In New York, trespassing can take the form of various charges:

1.Trespass 140.05

This charge of trespassing involves the accused illegally entering or lingering on the premises. However, this is only a violation.

2. Third-Degree Criminal Trespass 140.10

When charged with criminal trespass, the accused illegally entered another person’s property or illegally entered the building. With this criminal charge, the prosecution must prove that the accused knowingly entered and remained on the following type of property: a public housing project, a rapid transit railroad or railroad yard, elementary school, secondary school, or day camp, or a property with a fence around it.

3. Second-Degree Criminal Trespass 140.15

The accused can be charged with these allegations if they have entered another individual’s home or residence without prior permission. In order for this charge to go from a misdemeanor to a conviction, the prosecution must show that the accused chose to remain illegally inside the home.

4. First-Degree Criminal Trespass 140.17

When charged with first-degree criminal trespass, a deadly weapon must be involved. If the accused has knowingly illegally entered and remained inside a building while either possessing a weapon or knowing that another person involved in the crime possesses a weapon, it is likely that the charge will be elevated to the first degree.

Whatever the charges against you, hiring an experienced criminal trespass attorney from Spodek Law Group is in the best interest of the case as well as your future. Decide today that you will do all you can to fight for yourself. Having someone that you trust in your corner at the trial will make all the difference when a verdict is decided. With the right attorney, you’ll know that your right is being protected.
