Lawyer, Ricardo Alvarez

In the State of Florida, there are various forms of Criminal Burglary:

  • Burglary: According to Florida Statute Chapter 810.02, the Criminal Act of Burglary is defined as when any person when a person entered a dwelling, structure, or conveyance that was owned by or in the possession of another and had the intent to commit a crime in the dwelling, structure, or conveyance.
  • Third Degree Felony Burglary: When the burglary is committed towards a structure or conveyance, such as a car or a store (not a dwelling) and there are not victims present at the time of the alleged burglary.
  • Second Degree Felony Burglary: When the burglary is committed towards dwelling and there are not victims present at the time of the alleged burglary.
  • First Degree Felony Burglary: When the burglary is committed towards dwelling and there are victims present at the time of the alleged 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.

If you have been charged with a burglary crime, you need an attorney on your side who is knowledgeable of the law, experienced at trial, and able to negotiate for you from a position of strength.
