Noahide laws protect people from being arrested if they enter their own homes in order to avoid being discovered and/or charged with trespassing, according to a new article from the Washington Post.
In a recent story, the paper reported that the state’s Noahide law allows homeowners to shield their property from law enforcement officers in order not to be caught in the act of trespassing and that courts have recognized that as an “important tool for protecting people from unwanted intrusion into their home.”
The Noahide act is part of the state constitution and the law, which was created in 2000, is widely known as the Noahide Bill.
“The Noahide Act protects the rights of people who are in their own dwelling, including children, seniors, and those with disabilities,” the Post reported.
“It also protects the people from law-enforcement officers who want to enter their dwelling.”
The Noahid laws allow homeowners to make a variety of adjustments to their property in order “to ensure the safety and privacy of their property.”
The laws say the homeowner can place a sign on their front door that says “NOAHIDE”, which means “no trespassing” and also indicates that they have permission to enter.
The law also says the homeowner is “responsible for the security and security measures” of their home.
One example of an adjustment the law allows for is for the homeowner to add a sign that says, “NO-Trespassing”, which also indicates the homeowner has permission to walk through the front door.
If the homeowner fails to comply with the law’s requirements, the law says, they can be arrested.
A Noahide home can be fined up to $1,000 for failing to comply.
