Written by Stryder Wegener

An individual was found inside a building they weren’t authorized to be in and they were charged with criminal trespass in the second degree. As a gross misdemeanor, this exposed them to possible time behind bars if convicted and they contacted the criminal defense lawyers at Emerald City Law Group. Our attorneys thoroughly investigated the details of the incident and pointed out some errors in the state’s case. By highlighting these mistakes, we negotiated to have the charges reduced to a third-degree criminal trespassing offense, which is a simple misdemeanor and removed the fear of a jail sentence. By completing a community service requirement, the client could easily move on with their life.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
