According to R.I.G.L. §11-44-26, it is unlawful for someone, who has no legitimate purpose for their presence, to enter or remain upon the property of a family or household member. In order to prove your case, the prosecutor must establish that there was a domestic relationship between you and the property owner, there was no reason to enter or remain on the property, and you were given an advanced notice that you are not allowed on the property.
If the defendant violated a lawful restraining order, due to The Domestic Violence Prevention Act, additional penalties may apply.
When you’re facing these type of penalties, it’s imperative to speak with an experienced, skilled and trustworthy attorney. Our founding attorney, Tom Thomasian, can use his comprehensive knowledge of the state legal system and court proceedings to help you get your life back on track.
