Types of Criminal Trespass
There are two main types of trespassing crimes in Maryland: trespass on posted property and trespass on private property.
Trespassing on posted property means entering the property that is posted conspicuously against trespassing, often in the form of signs on the fences, posts at each entrance, or even markings on trees. By contrast, trespassing on private property means entering, crossing over, or remaining on another person’s property without the owner’s knowledge.
Trespassing is considered a misdemeanor, punishable by a jail term of up to 90 days and a maximum $500 fine. Additionally, a person accused of trespassing could also face burglary charges.
