Aggravated Serious Criminal Trespass in a place of residence? (ASCT)

Contact Woods & Co Lawyers in Adelaide

Use our experience of over 20 years. We provide honest forthright advice.

ASCT is an offence that used to be called House Break and Larceny. The law was expanded to capture those who enter or remain in a place of residence with the intention to commit an offence to which the section applies.

Relevant offences include theft, property damage and assault.

You might not associate breaking into your so called own premises as being an offence but we have acted for many people who have been going through a relationship breakdown and entered the premises of their former partner.

Often they have been angry, or trying to speak to the complainant about the breakdown. Commonly, the situation deteriorates and an assault is alleged. Further taking items and damaging items may also result in charges.

It is important to obtain legal advice promptly as this can be a complex area of the law. If found guilty of ASCT then you may face significant imprisonment.

Other forms of SCT may apply to business and non residential buildings. Even a building site may amount to a trespass.

Please call our friendly and experienced team of solicitors and allow us to help you.

We can appear in all courts in Adelaide and South Australia.

I contacted woods and co lawyers with a matter that I was not convinced could be resolved. After my meeting with Vivian Ngo, I was assured that she would do everything she could to help. Vivian was successful and my matter resolved quickly. I think Woods and Co , especially Vivian Ngo, are worth their weight in gold! Thank you again Ferruccio Cardellini ( Fish )

I would like to draw attention to the excellent and professional conduct of Ben chehade at woods and co, he worked tirelessly, and communicated with my partner and I every step of the process, After hours included to put together a genuine supporting argument to secure me a favourable result on a criminal matter, I will make it clear that breaking the law will always draw a penalty I know this first hand, And all people make mistakes, I'm not proud of it. But with a energetic, confident lawyer like Ben on your side he will secure you a fantastic and fair result !!!!! To Ben I say thankyou!!!

They are reliable, honest and operate with integrity. I recommend them to anyone who is looking for some great legal advocacy and support. Ben always takes the time to answer any questions I may have, and provides me with all the options available. As a new with a legal matter, it can be difficult to find a suitable lawyer. I was lucky to be connected to Ben. On another note, their charges were also very reasonable to the services they provided.
