A: I would be glad to try and answer this question, but Trespass is a term that is used in a number of different offenses in North Carolina. You can commit trespass against personal property or against real property (land) or against a number of specific entities or on land posted for hunting etc. But most of us think of trespass as going onto the land of another without permission.

So I will assume that you are looking for trespass to land. Try looking at the statutes for 1st Degree Trespass (NCGS14-159.12) and 2nd Degree Trespass (NCGS 14-159.13) can be found online using the North Carolina General Statutes Chapter 14 -- thus 14-159.12 and 13.
