§ 375.06  Unlawful Entry Prohibited
   (a)   Except in the case of an emergency or if it is impracticable to do so, a landlord shall give a tenant reasonable notice of his or her intent to enter the leased premises and enter only at reasonable times. Twenty- four (24) hours is presumed to be reasonable notice in the absence of evidence to the contrary.
   (b)   If a landlord makes an entry in violation of Section (a) hereof, makes a lawful entry in an unreasonable manner, or makes repeated demands for entry otherwise lawful that have the effect of harassing the tenant, the tenant may:
      (1)   At the tenant’s option, either recover actual damages resulting from the entry or demands, or recover damages of an amount not less than Fifty Dollars ($50.00) nor more than Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00);
      (2)   Obtain injunctive relief to prevent the recurrence of the conduct;
      (3)   Obtain a judgment for reasonable attorneys’ fees;
      (4)   Terminate the rental agreement.
