Our client was charged by the Pennsylvania State Police with felony Criminal Trespass. Attorney Liz
Ebner argued the case at a preliminary hearing and won by convincing the judge that the alleged victim
was lying. This means that the charges against our client were dismissed before they even reached the
Berks County Court of Common Pleas. A felony Criminal Trespass charge is serious and can result in a
maximum sentence of 10 years of incarceration. In order to prove a felony Criminal Trespass charge,
the district attorney has to show that a defendant entered, broke into, or remained in a building,
knowing that he was not allowed to do so. There are multiple ways to defend against a charge of felony
Criminal Trespass. For example, it is a defense to the crime if the building entered was abandoned.
Further, it is a defense to the crime if the defendant reasonably believed that the owner of the property
would have allowed him to enter or remain in the building. Our criminal law attorneys can help you if
