What Is the Penalty for Trespassing?

Answer

Penalties on trespass depend on the jurisdiction where the crime was committed (federal, state, local) but in general, criminal trespassing is prosecuted in most jurisdictions as a misdemeanour or a low-grade felony. It can be as simple as walking into a house unannounced, or as serious as entering a home or business to commit a robbery, vandalism or other crimes.

Since trespassing is not a criminal offence, trespassers cannot be prosecuted but can be sued. However, there is a crime called criminal trespass where one trespasses and causes damages to the owners land. In this type of case, the penalty becomes imprisonment of up to six months with up to a fine of £5000.
