According to Florida law, when one enters onto another’s property such as an apartment, house or building without permission or after receiving an instruction not to, it is considered a trespass with or without warning. A common example of trespass would be an establishment like bar, nightclub or restaurant where a rowdy patron is asked to leave and he or she attempts to remain inside or re-enters.
Most people arrested with this crime feel they have not done anything wrong and the police officer or the bouncer have treated them unfairly. Oftentimes this is true and they have been treated unfairly and it is the over-zealous police officer or bouncer who has abused their power.
