Trespassing occurs when someone enters onto private property without the owner’s permission. Trespassing onto to someone else’s private property in California is an infringement on the owner’s exclusive rights to that property, and it is illegal. There are many ways a person can criminally trespass and many defenses a person can use who is charged with criminally trespassing.
