Trespassing can seem like a minor and harmless activity, but under California law, PC 602, it is a misdemeanor and can be punished by up to a year in jail.

Trespassing is commonly thought of as walking onto someone else’s property and refusing to leave after being told to do so, whether by a person or a no trespassing sign. While that does fall under the legal definition of trespass, the crime can also include any of the following:

  • Cutting timber on another person’s property
  • Tearing down a road sign
  • Entering someone else’s property and causing harm to the property
  • Destroying a no trespassing sign
  • Tampering with a lock on a gate to another person’s property
  • Refusing to leave a public building after it’s closed to the public

Trespassing can sometimes accompany charges of burglary or vandalism.

While trespass may seem like a minor criminal activity, it can cause problems down the road when you apply for a new job or try to get into a school program. An attorney can help you through the legal process and minimize the impact a trespass charge will have on your future.
