Justin Casquejo was arrested in March and charged with Trespassing when he climbed to the top of the under-construction skyscraper.
Though he did not technically BASE jump, a 2008 law makes it illegal to climb or attempt to climb up the exterior of a building.
The teen is expected to be back in court April 30th. The additional charge carries a sentence of up to one year in prison.
