Trespass: This charge is given when a person unlawfully enters or remains in a building or other property without the consent of the property owner. There are differing degrees of trespass, depending on whether or not the individual or another person possesses a firearm. First degree trespass is a Class D felony.

Burglary: An individual who knowingly trespasses onto property with the intent to commit a crime would be charged with burglary. Like trespass charges, there are varying degrees of burglary charges depending on whether a firearm was in possession or used.
