Burglary Defense Attorney in Brooklyn
What constitutes burglary?
Burglary is usually defined as illegally entering any building or structure (not limited to a home or business) with the intention of committing a crime. Burglary is most often thought of as involving theft but it could be any crime. A person walking through an open, unlocked doorway uninvited, with the intention of stealing money could be charged with burglary whether any money was actually taken or not. To prove guilt in a burglary charge, the prosecutor must give evidence or show that each separate part of the definition has been done. For example, a prosecutor must prove that the defendant entered without the consent of the person who owns or occupies the property. A skilled and knowledgeable
