Burglary and theft are slightly different matters, but both have serious consequences that require aggressive criminal defense. Burglary, as defined by criminal law, is entering a building without consent with the purpose of committing a crime, while theft is taking something from someone else to deprive that person of it permanently. Theft includes embezzlement and fraud, and can be punishable by fines, imprisonment, and restitution for lost property.

What do burglary charges incorporate?

  • Entering a building or structure, not just a home. This definition can include school buildings, houseboats, stores, camping tents, and trailer homes.
  • Entering without permission or illegally, whether by breaking in through force or by entering through an unlocked door or window.
  • Use of force is required in a breaking and entering charge and even lifting a window or opening a doorknob can satisfy this requirement.
  • Intent to commit a felony or theft must also be proven.

Burglary charges can be punishable by fines, jail or prison time, probation, and restitution for property damage or loss. It is vital that you get legal help as soon as possible after you are charged with burglary or theft. Our office is available 24/7, so don't wait to contact us immediately to get the legal assistance you need.
