Trespassing Charges in St. Louis, MO - for as little as $375

MOST TRESPASSING CHARGES CAN BE HANDLED FOR $375

If you are charged with trespassing in St. Louis, the police officer who issued the citation will most likely have found you on someone else’s property when you should not have been.  This is typically described as “unlawful entry upon a building, inhabitable structure, or real property.”  This type of charge can carry heavy fines, leave a bad mark on your permanent record, and in some cases (depending on the severity of the charges) jail time. 

$375 TO TAKE CARE OF MOST TRESPASSING CHARGES

Charges of trespassing (in St. Louis County, Jefferson County, or St. Charles County) can always be challenged (especially if in fact you did not make an unlawful encroachment upon the property of someone else).  But in all honesty, the standard for proving the elements of a St. Louis trespass are fairly low.  Indeed, even if your actions put you onto the property of someone else unintentionally, you are more often than not are considered to have trespassed upon that property.  For instance, if you out on a walk one morning on a trial through the woods by your house, but you accidentally take a wrong turn on the path and unintentionally end up on the property of someone else, you are technically liable for trespassing. 

PLEADING GUILTY IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!

The more likely scenario is that you have entered into the structure or dwelling of someone else (whether the structure or dwelling is a private or public place), and owner or proprietor does not like your presence there.  That individual calls the police, and the next thing you know, you are being charged with trespass.
