Marco Island Burglary Defense Attorney
Entering a building or dwelling with the intent to commit another crime is considered burglary. Sometimes the possession of burglary tools was involved in the alleged incident. Depending on the circumstances, such as the possession of a weapon, burglary is categorized as a first-degree felony, second-degree felony or third-degree felony. This is a serious criminal law violation that can include harsh penalties that range from five years to life in prison.
Naples Trespassing Charge Attorney
Trespassing is a crime with many variables that determine how the offense is classified. For the most part, trespassing is a relatively minor offense but any criminal charge can have serious repercussions. If convicted, your personal and professional reputation, as well as opportunities for employment, promotions and school admissions, could be compromised.
Frequently, trespassing is a result of a misunderstanding involving re-entry to a mall, bar or nightclub after the person was requested to leave. Often, the accused person does not know he or she was breaking the law. In this type of situation, trespassing is most often regarded as a second-degree misdemeanor offense with a maximum potential penalty of 90 days in jail and a $500 fine.
In other cases, trespassing can be considered a third-degree felony with a maximum potential penalty of five years in state prison and a $5,000 fine. This more serious charge results from the presence of a weapon or intent to commit another felony, such as burglary.
