Frisco Car Burglary Defense Attorneys

Criminal Defense Attorneys for Clients Charged with Breaking into Cars in Collin County

Denton County Burglary Lawyers

If you are like most people, you might be unsure about the legal definition of the term "burglary" and how it is different from offenses such as theft or robbery. It is important to know, however, each Texas law provides distinct meanings and criteria for each of these offenses—along with different penalties for a conviction.

At the Law Offices of Biederman & Burleson P.L.L.C., in Frisco, Texas, our experienced attorneys provide aggressive, responsible defense representation to individuals facing charges of burglary. We have successfully defended hundreds of clients, and we are ready to put our knowledge and experience to work for you.

Texas Law Regarding Burglary

The offense of burglary is sometimes referred to as "breaking and entering," because charges of burglary can be filed even if you did not steal anything. According to Section 30.02 of the Texas Penal Code, a person commits burglary by entering a home or a building or remaining in a home or building with the intent of committing a felony, theft, or assault. There is no requirement for the additional crime to have been committed. Your intent is enough to support a burglary charge.

If the building in question is a store or business, rather than a residence, burglary is typically prosecuted as a state jail felony. A conviction could result in up to two years in a state jail facility and fines of up to $10,000. Burglary of a residential building is a second-degree felony, with potential penalties of up to 20 years in prison. You could be charged with a first-degree felony for burglary if you are suspected of entering a residence with the intent to commit a felony other than theft, such as aggravated assault or murder. A conviction on first-degree felony burglary charges could land you in prison for the rest of your life.
