The other night I was drunk, and snuck into my neighbour's garden, and glanced at them sleeping through the patio doors. I was dared to do this by my friend who I was playing Truth or Dare with. They never saw me, and I was out of there before anyone noticed. Now, I am anxious and feel sick for my actions, will I go to prison? I never stole anything.

No, they'd need to be aware of your trespass to prosecute.

You trespassed into their garden, that is illegal. You then watched as they slept, which is beyond weird.

No, you won't go to prison. But by all means go to the police and turn yourself in if that's really what you want.

I was drunk. Have you never made any mistakes? Not everyone indulges on alcohol, but we all make mistakes.. Illegal or not.

Why is your username 'White Guy'? :confused:
I have another thread explaining why, please do not bring this up on another thread. I will be willing to talk on my own.

In the UK trespass is a civil matter. Therefore you cannot be arrested for it. You can be prosecuted privately however. You made a mistake, don't start telling everyone about it. Simply learn from it and move on.

It was a drunken dare, if nobody saw you you'll be fine. Nobody is gonna grass to the cops probably and I imagine you wouldn't be able to prove that you were actually in their garden as it would probably be his word against yours unless they had security cameras or something. I'm sure security cameras eventually erase themselves anyway after like a month so you'll be fine. Don't worry about it

Depends what age the OP is to be honest. Early teens less weird, nearing towards 16 maybe quite weird. Still, at least they realise they did something wrong.
