  1. As to which notice against entering or remaining is given, either by actual communication to the offender or by posting, fencing, or cultivation as described in s. 810.011; or

  2. If the property is the unenclosed curtilage of a dwelling and the offender enters or remains with the intent to commit an offense thereon, other than the offense of trespass...

... commits the offense of trespass on property other than a structure or conveyance.

Criminal Trespass is a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable by a definite term of imprisonment not exceeding 1 year.

If the offender is armed with a firearm or other dangerous weapon during the commission of the offense of trespass on property other than a structure or conveyance, he or she is guilty of a felony of the third degree, punishable by a term of imprisonment not exceeding 5 years.
