The charge of burglary is a felony offense and occurs when some breaks and enters into a property to commence a crime. A burglary has different punishment based on whether the premises is residence, unoccupied, occupied or a business.  The seriousness of a burglary charge often involves whether the break in occurred in a commerical establishment or business; an unoccupied residence, an occupied residence or other building like a detached garage.  

Breaking and Entering is a misdemeanor offense that occurs when someone breaks into premises which they are not licensed to do so. Criminal Trespass is a misdemeanor offense that occurs when someone enters premises which they are not license to do so but without breaking and entering. Defiant Trespass is a summary offense caused when a person enters upon the property of another despite warning not to do so.

It is critical to speak with an experienced attorney to discuss your burglary case, whether charge have already been filed or whether the police are still investigating.  Never agree to speak with the police ans subject yourself to their interrogation before you have obtained the advice of legal counsel to discuss your rights, and also the penalties and consequences of being charged with a burglary or breaking and entering.  

When evidence and guilt is not in question, extenuating circumstances may convince the court to either reduce the charges against you or the sentence you face. As your Pennsylvania criminal defense lawyer, we work with prosecutors in exploring alternative sentencing options when a plea of "guilty" may be in your best interest. In certain cases where provocation, a medical condition, or alcohol is involved, it may be possible to avoid jail or a heavy fine in exchange for a promise to get counseling, provide community service, and agree to probation.
