Palm Beach Burglary Attorney
Accused of burglary in Palm Beach ?
Burglary, informally referred to as "breaking and entering" is
a criminal offense that will be charged as a
theft crime in the state of Florida. 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.
Florida 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.
