Regarding Domestic Criminal Trespass

Dear richfed:

Greetings. Domestic Criminal Trespass is located at N.C.G.S.

Yes, please … I would like to read the law as written. Thank you.

Domestic Criminal Trespass N.C.G.S.

Would a sexual encounter between the spouses - outside of the home - void this?

Dear richfed:

No, a sexual encounter between the spouses would not void this. Only if the parties voluntarily reconcile and live together again can this statute not apply. Best of luck.

The response posted above is based upon the limited factual information made available and is not intended as a full and complete response to the question. The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion. The basic information provided above is intended as a public service but a full discussion with an attorney should be undertaken before taking any action.

Where can I read how this law is written? Typically, how severely does the court deal with this if no violence or threats are involved?

Also, has anyone ever been charged & prosecuted with this “crime”? Related experiences would be appreciated.
