Fighting Burglary Charges
The most common way to be charged with a Burglary Offense is if someone breaks into a home or businesss and steals something. But, a Burglary Offense can be charged for far less obvious reasons. Imagine you are out with friends, have a little too much to drink, and decide to visit a significant other who lives with their parents. You notice an unlocked service door, and enter the garage without permission. You see a bicycle and decide it will get you home quicker, so you take it with the intention of “borrowing it.” Unfortunately, you have technically committed a burglary. You entered a home without the owners consent, and you took something that did not belong to you. This behavior can lead to criminal Burglary Offense against you.
