Trespassing at River City Casino St. Louis, MO - for as little as $450
Did you recently receive a citation for trespassing at the River City Casino in St. Louis, MO? Did a security guard or police officer insist that you had too much alcohol, and that you needed to leave immediately? In response, did you state that you were not intoxicated, and that you should be allowed to stay? After this interaction, did the guard or officer issue a ticket for trespassing? Did you know that if you hire an experienced attorney to deal with the charge, there is a good chance that it will get knocked down to some lesser offense?
FEES FOR A STANDARD TRESPASS START AT $450
Casinos in St. Louis are notorious for handing out trespassing tickets. Most of the time, it is because they claim that you are too drunk, and that you need to leave the premises. Whether or not you have actually had “too much to drink” is of course a whole other matter (very frequently, the person receiving the citation is not). But it is a tactic that the casinos use in order to get you out of their facility.
PLEADING GUILTY TO THE CHARGE IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
But just because River City Casino writes you a citation for trespassing, that does not mean your rights have suddenly been taken away!! Indeed, the city or county has to prove that you were in fact trespassing. If the security guard or police officer states that you have had too much to drink, and that you need to leave, that interaction alone does not constitute St. Louis trespassing. But if you stay inside the establishment after you are told to leave, then they have the opportunity to write you up for trespassing.
Does this sound like a bum deal? If so, you should get in touch with us right away!! The state of Missouri cannot charge you trespassing unless it proves that a trespass has actually taken place. So the last thing you want to do is plead guilty to the ticket. Pleading guilty to the charges will allow the state to put this information on your permanent record. That can potentially have an impact on you getting a job in the future, getting a student loan, or any number of things.
