Valrico, FL asked in Civil Litigation, Municipal Law, Consumer Law and Criminal Law for Florida

Q: If I was asked not to return to a store in Florida, is there a time limit to how long I can be trespassed for that store

If there is a time limit, how long is the trespass in effect for? I was just given a verbal warning by the store manager not to return. No paperwork or charges were filed. I am allowed to go to other stores with the same name; just not that location. (I asked the store manager upon him asking me to leave.) The store manager did not give me a date to which I could return, nor did I ask him.

A: You should not risk returning to that store location if you were told not to. You do not want to get arrested for trespassing. If you are able to go to other store locations but not one specific store, stay away from that store, period. No need to cause problems for yourself when you can go to other store locations.
