Are You Facing Theft Or Trespassing Charges In Florida?

Simple mistakes or momentary lapses of judgment can lead to serious charges that will impact your future. In Florida, the allegations of theft or trespassing are taken seriously. You may even find yourself facing a felony charge after shoplifting a few items.

Felony And Misdemeanor Theft Charges

In St. Johns County, any theft valued over $300 is a felony. It is important to know that theft of a firearm or certain substances will also be charged as a felony, despite the actual cost of the property. You can also be charged with theft by:

  • Keeping lost items you found
  • Keeping packages or items that are mistakenly delivered to you
  • Unauthorized use of a car
  • Lying to receive property that you do not have a right to
  • Executing any forms of identity theft

Any theft charges should be taken seriously. You need a strong defense when facing these charges and a lawyer skilled with creating a defense strategy.

Trespassing Charges In Florida

Criminal trespass is regarded as anyone knowingly entering property that they do not lawfully have a right to enter. Since there is no regulation on trespass signs, you need to use your best judgment in areas you should not enter. Exploring the city can quickly become a trespass charge if you are on protected land, government land or private property. Depending on the specific situation, you could be facing a misdemeanor charge or a violation.
