In the State of Florida, there are various forms of Criminal Burglary:
In order to obtain a conviction the prosecution must show beyond a reasonable doubt that the individual charged with burglary entered the dwelling, structure, or conveyance without the permission of the owner or resident of the dwelling, structure, or conveyance with the intent to commit a crime. If the states case is not as strong as they would like it to be they may look for anything to be in disarray or damaged in order to associate some type of crime with the alleged burglary. This could be something as small as chipped paint, which may satisfy a criminal mischief charge, or a items that are missing from the house which may lead to theft or even robbery charges as well.
