Trespass on a Construction Site

Trespass on a construction site, horticulture land center or agriculture site or domestic violence center

In general terms, a Trespass occurs whenever an individual willfully enters or remains on property without being authorized, licensed, or invited. Or once on the property legally, is given notice to leave by an authorized person. Usually a trespass is a misdemeanor, however, in some criminal cases, Trespass can be a much more serious felony crime.

The misdemeanor can be elevated to a felony crime if the property being trespassed upon qualifies under Florida Criminal Statute 810.09 as a:


  • Construction Site
  • Horticulture Land
  • Agriculture Site
  • Domestic Violence Center


These are special crimes and before the prosecutor can gain a conviction there are certain facts that must be proven against the accused citizen.

For example, in order to prove the crime of Trespass on a Construction Site, the size of the property matters. If the land area is greater than 1 acre in area, it must be posted properly under the statute and include the warning in substantially the following manner: “THIS AREA IS A DESIGNATED CONSTRUCTION SITE, AND ANYONE WHO TRESPASSES ON THIS PROPERTY COMMITS A FELONY.”

I have just moved to the Tampa area. I was intoduced to Tom after being arrested for a DUI. Within minutes of being bonded out Tom came to my place of employment with all needed documents to "get the ball rolling". He always kept me informed on my case and when the time came for my hearing, I plead guilty to wreckless and had no fines and very little commuity service. Thomas Grajek is a great attorney and I feel he would be a valuable assett in anyone's defense.
