Do not face burglary or robbery charges without a lawyer.
In general terms, burglaries occur when a person breaks into homes, other buildings or vehicles to commit theft, assault or a felony. When the offense takes place in a home or building, it is a felony. Burglary of a vehicle is a misdemeanor. Robbery occurs when a person uses the threat of bodily harm or actual harm to steal another’s property. If a weapon is involved, it can be charged as aggravated robbery. Burglary and robbery convictions can result in lengthy prison sentences, depending on the specifics of the crime.
Charges and penalties may depend on whether anyone was injured during the offense. Aggravated robbery may include penalties such as a fine of up to $10,000 and/or five to 99 years in prison.
