Burglary Indictments in Texas
Burglary is a serious offense in Texas, which strictly defines the crime as any individual who enters a building or habitation without authorization with the intent to commit a crime such as a felony, theft or assault. It even extends to those who enter a building when it’s open to the public, but remain concealed to commit such an offense later. Burglary can incorporate other crimes as well like kidnapping or arson depending on what occurred during the incident.
Burglary involves a wide range of breaking and entering offenses with the intent to steal. You can be charged with burglary if you illegally entered the building even if nothing was removed. In fact, physically breaking and entering isn’t even necessary, gaining entry by fraud or confidence tactics also qualify. Basically unlawfully entering any physical structure, such as a car, boat, office, home, shed, storage unit or barn, can induce a burglary charge if you had the intent to steal.
Based on the circumstances of the crime, a burglary conviction may result in a felony, landing years of jail time and thousands of dollars in fines not to mention the lasting lifetime effects associated with a federal crime conviction. If you have been accused of any type of theft crime, seek out an experienced defense attorney who will aggressively fight on your behalf.
