What Is Involved in a Burglary Charge?

Burglary is generally the breaking and entering of another person’s dwelling at nighttime with the intention of committing a crime. Burglary can be charged as 1st or 2nd degree burglary depending on if anyone was home at the time of the breaking and entering. Convictions for burglary can carry severe consequences, so it is essential to retain a Charlotte attorney with the knowledge and skills necessary to win cases.

Common defenses to burglary charges include:

  • You had the permission of the property owner to enter the property.
  • You did not have the intent to commit a crime.
  • You did not have the intent to commit another crime.
  • You were forced to commit the crime.
  • You have an alibi for the time at which you allegedly committed the crime.
  • The prosecution does not have enough evidence to prove you committed the crime.
