    Trespassing is a misdemeanor. ? Entry into a building or a habitation, even if nothing is taken but if there is an intent to commit a felony or an assault, is a felony.

    Trespass falls under Texas Penal Code section 30.05. Although there are different punishment ranges for trespassing, there is no such thing as felony trespass. The highest possible charge under the trespass category is a Class A misdemeanor which carries a punishment of up to one year in the county jail and up to a $4,000 fine.

    Generally, it is a misdemeanor. Look to see if the maximum sentence is one year or less. If so, it is a misdemeanor.
