    Bill Summary

    Generally under present law, a person commits the crime of aggravated criminal trespass who enters or remains on property when:
    (1) The person knows the person does not have the property owner's effective consent to do so; and
    (2) The person intends, knows, or is reckless about whether such person's presence will cause fear for the safety of another.

    This offense is a Class B misdemeanor unless it was committed in a habitation, in a building of any hospital, or on the campus, property, or facilities of any private or public school, in which event it is a Class A misdemeanor.

    This bill adds that a person would also commit the crime of aggravated criminal trespass who enters or remains on property, without the owner's consent, when the person, in order to enter the property, destroys, cuts, vandalizes, alters, or removes a gate, signage, fencing, lock, chain, or other barrier designed to keep trespassers from entering the property.
