Trespassing involves the entering of another’s land without their consent or remaining after consent is withdrawn. For example, if someone who was invited to a dinner party at someone else’s home is told to leave, they must do so, or he or she will possibly face a trespassing offense. On some land, owners such as farmers post “NO TRESPASSING” signs to put potential trespassers on notice that the land is not public and to stay out. Florida law includes heavy fines and severe criminal penalties, including possible mandatory/minimum sentences of up to 25 years and maximum potential sentences of up to life. Mr. Petruzzi has represented numerous individuals charged with, or under investigation for, trespassing offenses by state authorities. His experience and knowledge serve as an invaluable asset to his clients.
