At a Franklin County Municipal Court Tuesday, Wunder's attorney entered a plea of “not guilty.” Wunder did not appear in court. 

Wunder, accused of criminal trespassing, a fourth-degree misdemeanor punishable by no more than 30 days in jail, was released on a $79 bond Sunday morning after getting booked Saturday night. 

His attorney, Mark Collins, who has previously represented former Buckeye football players Jack Mewhort and Jake Stoneburner, has asked Judge James E. Green for a jury trial.
