What is the name of your state? tennessee I have a friend who has been arrested for trespassing and vandalism. He is not being held for this but has a court date coming up. What are the penalties if he is convicted for this and should he obtain a lawyer?

"What are the penalties if he is convicted for this"
*** Most criminal charges have different 'degrees'. Any penalty that he might see would depend on the EXACT charges made against him.

"and should he obtain a lawyer?"
*** It is always best to retain counsel if someone is facing a CRIMINAL charge.


This is what happened..........he stopped by his former place of employment to talk with some friends. He had a friend with him and this guy went inside the building-invited-and while there defaced a picture of his ex that was hanging on the wall. My friend didn't even realize this had happened until a warrent was issued for him. He is in trouble for the actions of his friend.
