Reporter’s Note

The unlawful trespass statute, 13 V.S.A. § 3705(d), derives from the model penal code.  The third essential element requires proof of the defendant’s subjective knowledge that he or she was neither licensed nor privileged to do so.  This element may be satisfied by circumstantial evidence.  State v. Cram, 2008 VT 55, 184 Vt. 531 (mem.).
