Can I Be Convicted of Trespassing if A No Trespassing Sign Was Not Posted?

A good criminal defense lawyer in Baltimore MD will tell you that a ‘NO TRESPASSING’ sign must be posted where it should be seen by the public in order to subject a violator to penalty.

However, a sign is not always necessary. One can be convicted of trespass, where there is no posted warning.
