Facing Burglary Charges in Pasadena?

By Michael V. Severo  Nov. 17, 2010 4:45p

If you are convicted of a burglary crime in California, the penalties you may face are extremely harsh. Laws regarding violent crimes are constantly revised to crack down on criminals in order to help reduce crime in the city of Pasadena. There are many different forms and severities of burglary, but even a first offense is punishable with up to six years or more in state prison. Breaking into a home residence, business, unoccupied building, or using a weapon all affect how serious a burglary conviction is, and when a person is injured or killed during the commission of a burglary crime, the defendant can even face more serious crimes such as manslaughter, assault or battery. Due to the seriousness of burglary cases, it is recommended to immediately seek help from an experienced Pasadena burglary lawyer.

The penalties for burglaries are affected by many different factors including if a building is occupied, if it is a residence or business, if the building is abandoned, whether or not a weapon is involved or used, the value of the items stolen, damaged or destroyed in the process of the burglary, and whether or not anyone was injured or killed during the crime. The punishments for these theft crime convictions can include 1 to 6 years in state prison, fines and restitution for the property stolen or damaged, probation, and even longer sentencing if a crime is more serious and involves death or injury.
