Have You Been Charged for Committing Burglary?

By Zendeh Del Law Firm  Jan. 10, 2011 11:25a

Whenever a person illegally enters another's property or home with the intention of committing a theft, assault or other felony crime, they are committing a burglary. While burglary, also known as breaking and entering, is most often associated with theft crimes, you can be charged with committing burglary if you illegally enter any property with the intent of committing a felony. The felony crime itself does not even have to be committed, merely proven in court that there was the intention of committing a crime. The penalties for a burglary conviction can be extremely severe and result in serious long-term consequences on your life. If you've been charged or arrested for committing a burglary you need immediate representation from a Plano criminal defense attorney.

The penalties for a burglary conviction can be as minor as a short stint in county jail and a small fine, to a serious first or second-degree felony with penalties that include huge fines and up to 20 years to life in prison. Burglary charges should never be underestimated. If you are caught breaking into someone's house, even if you have no intention of committing a felony crime, the prosecution may be able to prove that you did in fact have the intent, which could result in a very serious criminal conviction. Due to the severity of the penalties for burglary charges, and the seriousness of a burglary conviction on your criminal record, it is vital that you have legal representation from an attorney with significant experience in handling these types of cases. Without legal aid, you could be facing not only jail or prison time, but also difficulties later in life with finances, job opportunities and even education opportunities.
