CRIMINAL TRESPASSING § 13-1502/1503/1504

In Arizona, there are three different classifications of Criminal Trespass for which a defendant may be charged. The location of the trespass decides the degree of seriousness.

Criminal Trespass in the first degree forms the basis of a Class 6 Felony if one enters or remains unlawfully in or on a residential structure. If one enters or remains unlawfully in a fenced residential yard, it is a Class 1 Misdemeanor.

Criminal Trespass in the second degree is a Class 2 Misdemeanor and occurs when a person enters or remains unlawfully in a non-residential structure or a fenced commercial yard.

Criminal Trespassing in the third degree is a Class 3 Misdemeanor and occurs when a defendant enters or remains unlawfully on the property after a reasonable request to leave by the person in lawful control of the property or if there is a reasonable notice prohibiting entry.
