Burglary

You could be Facing Severe Legal Repercussions

Burglary is a type of offense that typically involves breaking and entering into a home or other structure with the intent to commit an offense. Simply opening a window or door and entering the building can be considered burglary and anyone charged with this crime will face severe penalties, if convicted. The charges are generally enhanced if there are other crimes involved, such as sex crimes like rape or sexual assault, violent crimes or drug crimes, which can also result in harsher consequences. Depending on the circumstances and a person's prior criminal history, a burglary conviction generally can lead to:

  • Jail time
  • Probation
  • Fines
  • Community service
  • Restitution
  • Criminal record that may not be eligible in the future for expungement. This information can be viewed by anyone who conducts a background check and may prevent you from getting certain jobs, from renting property and other opportunities that arise in the future.
