Defending You Against Residential or Commercial Burglary Charges
One of the most common theft-related charges in California is burglary. Legally, burglary means entering a building or vehicle with the intention of committing any type of theft or any felony crime. As a practical matter, the charge of burglary usually relates back to theft.
If you have been charged with burglary, depending on the circumstances of your case, you could be facing from one to six years in jail. With such serious consequences, you need an attorney to mount an aggressive defense.
I am experienced at defending clients against residential and commercial burglary charges. I will take a hands-on approach to evaluate the facts of your case and hold the prosecutors accountable to each element they must prove in order to convict someone of this crime.
Understanding Different Types of Theft and Property Crimes
There are a number of criminal charges in California that involve the illegal taking of money or property. Among the most common charges are:
- Theft / larceny: Taking someone's property without intending to return it
- Embezzlement: Fraudulently taking property that has been entrusted to you
- Robbery: Taking property from someone through the use or threat of force
The penalties for these charges can vary a great deal depending on the exact accusations against you. In many cases, people are charged with multiple offenses at the same time. To discuss your charges and what I can do to fight them, contact me today.
