T respass in a Structure or Conveyance - Like trespass on property other than a structure or conveyance, this crime involves entering or staying on someone’s property without the proper permission. The important part of this statute is to understand what is a structure and what is a conveyance. The jury instructions explain it this way:

“Conveyance” means any motor vehicle, ship, vessel, railroad car, trailer, aircraft, or sleeping car; and to enter a conveyance includes taking apart any portion of the conveyance.

“Structure” means any building of any kind, either temporary or permanent, that has a roof over it, and the enclosed space of ground and outbuildings immediately surrounding that structure.

To put this in simpler terms, think about it like this: a structure is a building that someone doesn’t live in and a conveyance is something that gets you around. To trespass in either of these is a first-degree misdemeanor that can result in you going to jail for up to twelve (12) months and being fined up to a $1,000.00. If you are armed with a gun or other dangerous weapon then the charges could be increased to a felony, meaning that you could be facing up to five (5) years in prison.
