Joel Bacher, Wayne Criminal Defense Lawyer for Trespassing Charges
Trespassing is being present in a location where you’re not allowed to be. It can be an unwitting overstep onto secured or unsecured private property. It can also be a willful disregard of boundaries, sometimes escalating into a confrontation that encourages further criminal charges, such as lewd behavior or assault. A charge of trespassing can be the lesser charge attached to other charges when criminal activity occurs as a result of the trespass. However, most trespassing charges are usually brought before a Municipal Court Judge. That does not mean they should be taken lightly, and that you should go to Court alone. Quite the opposite.
What to Do if You are Arrested for Trespassing on Private Property
Trespassing is sometimes a simple misunderstanding. Sometimes it’s not. If you are arrested for trespassing, police may or may not have had good reason to bust you, but nevertheless, do not talk to the them about why you were trespassing. Exercise your right to remain silent and get a criminal defense lawyer for the trespassing charge at your first opportunity. That is your best chance for a downgrade, if not a dismissal. The police, when questioning you, despite what your mother may have told you, are not your friends. Although they appear friendly as such, that is how they do their job to get information to hold against you. Be polite, yes, but be firm, and request a call to a criminal defense lawyer at your first opportunity and continue to remain silent in the meantime.
Joel Bacher: Passaic County Trespassing and Property Crimes Lawyer
If you or someone you know has been arrested for trespassing, I urge you to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney for representation and counsel. The prosecutor’s office will always have the responsibility of proving you committed the offense beyond a reasonable doubt. Not only is this hard to satisfy, but if the presiding judge has any reason to believe you did not commit every element to the crime, the charges against you may be reduced or dismissed. I, Joel Bacher, am here to defend your rights. I have, for forty years, successfully defended numerous charges that involved theft. My Wayne law office has achieved numerous acquittals, dismissals and downgrading of charges for a wide range of property crimes. We prepare thoroughly for every case in the event of trial. We believe the way to mitigate if not dismiss a trespassing charge is to negotiate and litigate from a position of strength.
