LUZERNE COUNTY BURGLARY ATTORNEY
Accused of burglary in Luzerne County ?
Burglary, informally referred to as "breaking and entering" is a criminal offense that will be charged as a theft crime in the state of Pennsylvania. Individuals accused of burglary, or housebreaking, are suspected to have illicitly entered into a building or personal home with the intention of committing a criminal offense. United States law stipulates that burglary can be charged as misdemeanor or felony offense, depending on the nature of the behaviors involved. In general, to burgle is to trespass with the intent of committing a crime. Even no actual theft is made during the process, it can still be classified under theft law as a statutory offense for the mere intention or pre-planned thought of doing so.
Pennsylvania law is somewhat different than other state statutes concerning burglary. In our state, the entrance of any type of dwelling, structure, conveyance, etc. will be identified as burglary if there was an intent to commit an offense while on the property. Exceptions to this law are premises that are publicly accessible during daytime hours and entrance by licensed and/or invitees.
Assuming that neither of these two circumstances were at play, a first-, second-, or third-degree felony could be charged. Rather than facing the maximum sentence of a burglary, you should instead contact a Luzerne County criminal lawyer from our firm.
