Making Sure You Understand the Burglary Charges Against You
Legally, burglary means breaking into someone’s house or car for the purposes of committing a crime. Most people charged with burglary are accused of attempting some sort of theft, but technically, any criminal intent can be used as the basis for a burglary charge.
Many of my clients are accused of breaking into cars for the purposes of stealing stereos, cell phones, GPS devices, pocketbooks, and other valuable items. Even if the prosecutors cannot prove that you actually stole anything, they may still be able to convict you of burglary.
Fighting to Keep a Burglary Conviction off Your Record
If you hire me to defend you against burglary charges, I will carefully investigate the facts of your case in order to determine whether there are any vulnerabilities in the prosecution’s evidence. If so, I have the experience to aggressively fight the charges against you.
You may also have other options for avoiding conviction, including pretrial intervention. I will go over all the possible courses of action with you so you can make an informed decision about your case. Call me today at 609-390-4600 to discuss what I can do about your burglary charges.
