How Florida Law Treats Criminal Trespass Cases

Under Florida Statute 810, trespassing generally involves the act of entering and remaining in a vehicle, building or property without permission, license or invitation, or refusing to leave after being warned by the owner or authorized person to depart.

Florida statutes are intricate and contain many exceptions. The court’s view of your criminal trespass charge will depend on: where you trespassed (what type of property); what your intent was; whether anyone else was present; were you armed; and what other crimes you did (or did not) allegedly commit on the property. For example,

  • Trespassing on a school property is a second-degree Florida misdemeanor. This charge is punishable by up to 60 days in jail and fines up to $1,000. Trespassing in Central Florida school grounds while carrying a weapon is a 3rd degree felony, with maximum imprisonment of 5 years.
  • If you trespassed on a conveyance (a vehicle or other mode of transfer) or structure in Orlando, this is generally a second degree misdemeanor, with a penalty of up to sixty days in jail. If the structure is occupied by another person, prosecutors can elevate your charge to a first-degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to 12 months in jail.
  • If you had a gun, knife or other dangerous weapon when you trespassed, the offense can be charged as armed trespass, which is a third degree felony in Florida. A conviction can have a sentence of up to 5 years in prison with fines up to $5,000.
  • Trespassing on property other than a structure or conveyance is a first degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail. The properties could range from posted land, to someone’s yard, to a livestock pasture. In other cases, criminal trespass upon properties devoted to agricultural research, horticulture, construction sites and other specific purposes carries charges of a third-degree felony and a 5-year maximum prison term.

Developing a Thorough Criminal Trespass Defense

The team at the TK Law Firm can examine your case and help you build the most appropriate defense strategy. Depending on the facts that we uncover, there are numerous ways our lawyers can fight charges of trespass, such as:

  • The prosecution’s evidence that you committed trespass may be thin;
  • The person who demanded that you leave the premises did not have the authority to do so;
  • The property was considered open to the public;
  • You did not stay on the property after being asked to depart;
  • You did not know that you had been trespassing;
  • You only trespassed to help someone in need or to protect yourself from assault. For instance, if you took refuge from gang violence on a school or other property, the court may understand and accept your rationale.
