My ex of 15 yrs invited me into his home and secretly took pictures, called the police and had me charged with criminal trespass. Should I fight this in court? I have an extensive criminal history.
If you were invited into a home, where is the unlawful entry or trespass? Criminal Trespass In the First Degree is governed by KRS 511.060 and is a Class A misdemeanor that requires you Enter or Remain Unlawfully in a dwelling. It carries up to 365 days in jail and/or a max. fine of $500.00 and Court Costs of approx. $135.00.
Get a competent criminal defense lawyer in your area for advice. If you are on probation or parole this is a crime that could trigger a motion being filed. Get counsel ASAP.
I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..
Why not. You should at least discuss the situation with your attorney.
The above is not intended as legal advice. The response does not constitute the creation of an attorney client relationship as this forum does not provide for a confidential communication.
