Definition of Trespass:

  1. Entry to a persons land or property without their permission.

  2. A sin or offense.

  3. Unjustifiable direct interference with a person or his or her property whether intentional (willful) or innocent (due to ignorance or negligence). A trespass is normally a tort (civil wrong where it is not necessary to prove any damage was caused) and not a crime (public wrong that triggers a prosecution and leads to punishment). Therefore the notice Trespassers Will Be Prosecuted is usually misleading.

  4. Enter the owners land or property without permission.

  5. Commit an offense against (a person or a set of rules).
