Burglary

YOUR EXPERIENCED BURGLARY DEFENSE ATTORNEY

Burglary of a home or building is a felony offense in the state of Texas. Similar to robbery, which is also a felony theft offense, no actual theft has to take place for a person to be charged with burglary. In fact, all that is required is that an individual unlawfully entered a property with the intent to steal or commit a felony or other select crime. When you have an aggressive San Antonio criminal defense attorney working for you, you may be able to escape the charges against you. When you retain skilled lawyer Tylden Shaeffer, he can research every aspect of your case in order to find your strongest defense.

TYPES AND PENALTIES

There are varying degrees of felony burglary; 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th. 3rd and 4th degree involve businesses or other buildings that are not a home and are considered a “state jail felony.” 2nd degree burglary, which is a 2nd degree felony, involves the burglary of a habitation, while 1st degree is also the burglary of a habitation, but it must also involve the attempt or intent to commit another aggravating offense. Burglaries of vehicles are considered misdemeanors.

Penalties include heavy fines, restitution, revocation of gun ownership rights, and up to life imprisonment for the most severe charge.
