Criminal trespass in Arizona can be charged as a misdemeanor of a felony depending on the circumstances of the case. Maximum jail time for criminal trespass can be as little as 30 days or as much as 6 months if it is charged as a misdemeanor. If the case is charged as a felony, you could be sentenced up to 2 years in prison if there are aggravating factors present. Entering or remaining unlawful on someone else’s property may not seem like a huge deal, but when you consider the potential consequences if it is reported and charged as a crime, it can be a big deal.
