This is especially true for burglary, which can be loosely defined. You can be charged with burglary without physically breaking into a building or stealing anything. It could be as simple as walking through an unlocked door. If you had a weapon, you could be charged with armed robbery even if you never used it. In the eyes of the law, the phrase "dangerous weapon" can be used to refer to anything from a slingshot to a gun. However, our well-trained theft lawyer knows how to make these definitions work in your favor.
What Defense Can a Burglary Lawyer Make?
One common defense a burglary lawyer can make use of is consent. If the owner of a property has previously given you permission to enter, their case is weakened. Sometimes the matter is simply that of being locked outside of your own home and a neighbor thinking you're a burglar when you're not. Our well-qualified attorney can clear up these misunderstandings.
Even if the plaintiff can prove that there was a break-in, they may not have sufficient evidence to prove that you were the one who did it. Mistaken identity is a fairly common problem in breaking and entering cases. If you were intoxicated or otherwise out of control when entering, this also changes things.
