Are you getting ready to face burglary charges? If so, there are a couple of potential defenses that can be argued on your behalf.

  • Consent – If your legal team is able to demonstrate and establish that you had legal consent to enter and remain in a dwelling, you can’t be found guilty of burglary. In the event that the crime happened in a public place, burglary cannot be charged, unless it occurred in an “employees only” or similarly off-limits area.
  • Criminal Intent –  If you are to be proven to have committed burglary, it needs to be established that you had criminal intent. As an example, if you snuck into a dwelling, that could prove intent to commit a crime. However, seeking shelter from the elements may enable you to get charges reduced to trespassing.

There is a lot on the line during any criminal case. And, when it comes to an offense like burglary, you may be facing jail time, fines and a seriously blemished criminal record. Because of that, it is critical that you bring in a criminal defense attorney who specializes in Florida law.

Wayne Richter, today, and get started with your free initial consultation.
