The Blanch Law Firm has gained a national reputation defending clients against felony and misdemeanor charges in state and federal district court. We have a great deal of experience providing criminal defense of clients charged with Trespassing.
Criminal Defense of Trespassing, including with a Weapon
Simply put, trespass means knowingly entering or remaining unlawfully in a building or on real property. According to Penal Law Section (or Article) 140.17, the offense can rise in severity to Criminal Trespass in the First Degree, when the trespasser is in possession of a deadly weapon, explosive, or firearm, with ammunition that is readily accessible. Trespass is, therefore, directly related to the offense of Criminal Possession of a Weapon.
The Blanch Law Firm has established a first-rate record of obtaining results favorable to clients in trespass and weapons possession cases, as demonstrated by the following recent victories for our attorneys:
■Our client was accused of attempting to board a commercial jetliner at JFK International Airport while carrying a loaded handgun. We were able to get the charge dismissed.
■Our client, who was accused of Criminal Possession of a Weapon (a loaded handgun) and drug possession, faced a possible sentence of 15 years in jail. We obtained dismissal of all charges.
■Our client was charged with the criminal possession of two unlicensed loaded handguns that were found in his car trunk. If convicted, he faced up to 30 years in jail. We secured a disposition prior to trial that contained no jail time for the client.
The pre-trial accomplishments of attorneys at The Blanch Law Firm often affect the outcome a case, meaning the difference between a client’s conviction and acquittal. If we can take up a case early enough, application of our legal skills immediately may prevent a case from going to trial or can result in dismissal of all charges against our client.
