Denver Trespassing Charge Lawyer
When Colorado lawyers refer to trespassing, they refer to one of a group of Colorado statutes that deals with trespass (trespassing), varying by the degree of severity. Here is a listing of the standard trespass charges people are charged with in Denver, Colorado, and nearby in Arapahoe County, Douglas County, Jefferson County, and Adams County:
— C.R.S. 18-4-502 first-degree criminal trespass, which usually involves going into someone’s residence without permission or remaining in someone’s residence without permission, or if someone goes into any motor vehicle to commit a crime.
— C.R.S. 18-4-503 second-degree criminal trespass, which generally concerns going into or remaining in property other than a residence, which is enclosed, such as by a fence. People are charged with this offense in Arapahoe County, Colorado, and nearby in Denver County, Douglas County, Jefferson County and Adams County, when they go into or remain in someone’s car or truck without permission, or hang out in the common areas of a hotel or apartment building.
— C.R.S. 18-4-504 third-degree criminal trespass, usually involves a person going onto the premises of another or remaining there (after being asked to leave), in Jefferson County, Colorado, and nearby in Denver County, Douglas County, Arapahoe County, and Adams County. You might normally see this type of a charge when a person is on business property and refuses to leave, or when he or she is loitering around business property.
Whatever the alleged crime, if you have been charged with any type of trespass crime, the sooner you get a Colorado criminal defense lawyer on your side, the more options you will have for a favorable outcome. Often, a skilled attorney can prevent charges from ever being filed by acting promptly to communicate legally with the police or alleged victim. A business owner or neighbor, for example, may agree to a plan of keeping you off his or her property in the future in exchange for a lenient criminal probationary period.
