Property crimes are taken seriously, and we take them serious as well. Property crimes involve a wide range of criminal conduct, such as theft, burglary, robbery, criminal trespass, criminal mischief, and arson. See Tex. Pen. Code Ann. title 7, Chapters 28-35.
If you are charged with a property offense, be sure to hire an attorney who will fight for you and ensure the best result.
A person commits the offense of criminal trespass if such person enters or remains on the property of another, and (1) had notice that the entry was forbidden, or (2) received notice to depart but failed to do so. See Tex. Pen. Code Ann. § 30.05 (West 2019). Such offense is generally a Class B Misdemeanor, which provides for a fine not to exceed $2,000 and up to 180 days in jail. Such offense is a Class A misdemeanor if committed in a habitation or shelter center, which provides for a fine not to exceed $2,000 and up to 365 days in jail. Such offense can be a Class C misdemeanor if the offense is committed on agricultural land.
