Under Section 30.05 of the Texas Criminal Code, a person is guilty of criminal trespass if they enter or stay on another person’s property without consent to enter or if they were asked to leave the property. A trespass may occur on either “residential land, agricultural land, a recreational vehicle park, a building, or an aircraft or other vehicle.” Criminal trespass is classified as a misdemeanor offense.
Class C Misdemeanor Trespass occurs when you:
- Trespass on agricultural land within 100 feet of its boundary; or
- Trespass on residential land within 100 feet of a protected freshwater area.
Class B Misdemeanor Trespass occurs in situations that are not considered either Class C or Class A Misdemeanor Trespass.
Class A Misdemeanor Trespass occurs in the following situations:
- Habitation or shelter centers;
- Superfund sites;
- Infrastructure facilities;
- State universities; or
- While carrying a deadly weapon.
