If you or a loved one has been arrested or charged with Criminal Trespass in central Texas, but more specifically in the Austin – Travis, Williamson, Hays, Bastrop, Burnet or Lee Counties areas, it is important to hire an experienced criminal lawyer to represent you.
Criminal Trespass is generally committed when a person enters or remains on or in someone else’s property, including residential land, agricultural land, building, aircraft or other vehicle and 1) had notice that the entry was forbidden, or 2) received notice to depart but failed to do so.
The law can also run opposite your thinking. Allow me to give you an example. A person shoplifts a $10 item from HEB grocery store. That person is arrested and is given a criminal trespass warning. The HEB is located in a large complex with other stores adjacent to it such as Wendy’s and McDonald’s restaurants. The person later returns to McDonald’s and is arrested for criminal trespass. Can this happen even though the initial event happened a year before at HEB? Answer: Yes! The defendant is surprised to learn the criminal trespass warning has no expiration date and covers the entire grounds where HEB is located. This is why you need an attorney to better understand your legal rights.
Our goal in every Criminal Trespass case is to fully investigate every aspect of the case, develop an effective and aggressive defense strategy, and achieve the best possible outcome for your case.
