Although people charged with burglary may not steal anything from the property where they trespassed, burglary is still a theft crime. Theft is a crime of “moral turpitude,” meaning that our society believes someone accused of theft lacks integrity or moral standing.
Theft crimes can have severe repercussions for your life after a conviction. Theft convictions often affect a person’s prospects for education and employment. Immigrants convicted of theft could lose their immigration status and face deportation.
A theft defense attorney at our law firm can help you build your case against theft-related criminal charges.
Burglary charges encompass a wide range of offenses, including burglary, aggravated burglary, trespass in a habitation, and breaking and entering.
Breaking and entering is the lesser offense as a fifth-degree felony, while aggravated burglary is the highest offense as a first-degree felony.
Criminal trespass may include aggravated trespass or criminal trespass on a place of public amusement, such as a theater, stadium, arena, amusement park, or other event space.
