What Is Criminal Trespassing?
In California, it is illegal to trespass on the land or property of another. While trespassing laws are complex and best explained by an experienced criminal defense attorney on a case-by-case basis, the law in California states that trespass involves:
- Entering upon lands or buildings owned by any other person;
- Without the license of the owner or legal occupant;
- Where signs forbidding trespassing are displayed;
- Damaging, destroying, or removing;
- Or causing to be removed, damaged, or destroyed;
- Any stakes, marks, fences, or signs;
- Intended to designate the boundaries and limits of any of those lands.
One may not enter the land or property of another with the intention to do any of the following:
- Cause damage;
- Intrude or interfere with the business activities being conducted there;
- Enter or occupy the property without the owner’s permission; or
- Refuse to leave the property after being asked to do so.
Often trespassing is a misunderstanding, or there is some other defense to one’s presence on a property. Possible defenses to a trespassing charge include:
- There was permission to enter the property;
- There was no intent to cause damage;
- There were no signs or boundaries, and no knowledge of trespassing existed; and
- There was a peaceful assembly to protest.
